Guillemots and kittiwakes

The first two birds show the variations we get in British waters of the guillemot, the  bird on the right is of the 'bridled' morphism, picture two is a guillemot in flight and picture three a kittiwake and a guillemot sharing a ledge, picture four shows typical kittiwake nests, some even nest on the sides of buildings in some cities, picture five is the elegant kittiwake in flight, these birds spend large periods of the year far out at sea.
