14 June 15 - Fulmar City

One of the great things about the cliffs around Old Harry & other local Dorset sites along the Durlston to St Aldhelms coast is there are some brilliant views of the local Fulmars. However, you do need to be careful as while the cliff top looks nice & solid, it is only when you look along it, you realise there are overhangs & holes in the top of the cliff. Some of the holes get occupied by the Fulmars as they provide comfortable sheltered breeding sites.
Fulmar: I think this was just two pairs
Fulmar: They are pretty good to see at this range
Fulmar: Easy to see why they are called Tubenoses
Fulmar: But they can be noisy neighbours
