Fulmars (Fulmarus glacialis)

In cliff-edge des-res, about half-way between Runswick and Kettleness: this is a regular fulmar nest site. One looked like it was egg-sitting.

"In cliff-edge des-res, about half-way between Runswick and Kettleness" has such wonderful lilting music to it. It reminds me of something I read in National Geographic once about walruses; after the baby walrus went on his first swim, the mother gently caressed him with her flipper and nuzzled him with her tusk. The caption was: "A flipper hug and a tusk rub after a solo swim".
