The Fulmar has to be one of my favourite birds.  I love the way they use the wind currents to fly effortlessly on their relatively small stiff wings. The first two shots demonstrate the curious art of making baby Fulmars.  An onlooker is seeking tips. Pulling a high G turn with wings vertical and head horizontal.
Wings feeling the turbulence and nearing the stall but somehow I think the Fulmar has it all under control.   Put the kettle on luv.
