British Wildlife of the Week: Fulmar

At first glance, the fulmar looks superficially similar to a herring gull, with its grey wings and white underparts. But a closer inspection will reveal that it is a smaller bird, with a shorter, stubbier bill, and a dark smudge around the eyes. You also won’t catch the fulmar flying around coastal towns trying to steal chips because this is a very oceanic bird, spending most of its time far away from land.
