A bit late I know, but I did some seabird work in the northern North Sea back in August and have just got around to editing the photos. Huge numbers of Gannets were the main omnipresent feature, but as you’ll see, we had a few nice things. Including what I think is a first for the Northern Hemisphere…
Orca. Three animals NW of Foula, possibly the same as seen later off Aberdeen.
Greater and Lesser Black-backed Gulls. Obvious size difference!
Four Greater Black-backed Gulls. Obvious size variation!
