Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you
Thursday, 28 July 2016
Around the majority of coasts of the UK at this time of year you'll have a pretty good chance of coming across a Razorbill on the rocks. They only come to shore in the summer months to breed and raise their young, before spending the winter in the North Atlantic. Part of the Auk family, which includes Guillemots and Puffins, they remind me a little bit of the penguin. A very upright stance and large deep bill. I had a great time watching these around the Northumberland coast recently.

wonderful images of the razorbill. Especially like the middle image with the open bill :)ReplyDelete
He's new to me. And definitely wearing a tux, just like a penguin.ReplyDelete
