Another Fulmar…

Yes I’ve already admitted the addiction, might as well go with it now…

I got this Fulmar whilst watching a Peregrine harvest a cliff full of Kittiwakes recently.  The Fulmars seemed unconcerned as their chicks were in safe niches on the cliffs and the adults are far to big and nimble for a falcon to take on.  Fulmar chicks are also notorious for their ability to repel attackers with their thick oily vomit which smells strongly and would damage any self respecting birds feathers.
