Jockeying for position!

This Male Black Guillemot was trying his best to mount a proposed mate last week. She was having nothing of it! Every time he raised a leg in anticipation of getting on board she changed position … in the end they decided to just sit together and look out to sea. Lovely birds these, so uncommon here in Norfolk but up on Mull and the west coast of Scotland last week we saw plenty.

Black Guillies!

When we were travelling up to Mull we stopped to photograph several Black Guillemots. Not common further south they are a refreshing change from our other Auks. Smart dapper little birds with their pied plumage and red legs; cheerful little characters.
