About early December I noticed a few Fulmars were back around the Farnes. I do like these birds and when all the Guillemots and Puffins are back they tend to get over looked as there are so many other birds you just can’t see them.

I think it’s the way they glide across the water without hardly moving their wings that impresses me the most. Plus at this time of the year when none of the other birds are here, you get a chance to view them alot closer. Saying that I don’t think I would like to be spat on as I’ve heard it’s stinking.

One of my favourate places is the Inner Farne cliff face, as they use the updrafts that go up the cliff face to their advantage.
