I’ve been processing a lot of images today! The latest ones I have looked at are these Fulmar images from Bempton Cliffs so I thought I would share a few.
Fulmars are great birds to watch as they cruise along the cliff tops on stiff wings but can move at a considerable speed so I’ve deleted quite a few of just heads and tails. They are a member of the tubenose family of seabirds which refers to the tube like structure which cover their nostrils (seen in this image as the dark area above the yellow bit of the bill). Other ‘tubenoses’ consist of shearwaters and petrels.
