Another image of a Fulmar which is riding the up currents that are hitting the cliff from the sea below.  You can clearly see the tubenose structure in profile in this image.

083/365 Flying Fulmar Fulmarus glacialis


Yesterdays image, number 083 is of a flying Fulmar.  The last fews pictures have been from the English county of Norfolk, so I tend to continue this theme with the next images. Fulmars are fantastic birds to watch especially over the sea, as they flide on their ‘stiff’ wings.
