Black Guillimot (Cepphus grylle)

Back to the Isles of Shetland.
Its striking black and white plumage and bright red feet make it easy to identify in summer. Unlike most other European auks the black guillemot is typically found in ones and twos, scattered around rocky islets. It is typical of the larger sea lochs of western Scotland, and the northern and western isles, but is also found in Ireland, the Isle of Man and in a handful of spots in England and Wales.

  10. It really is a very striking bird especially with those red feet. Lovely photos as always Bob.

    Sorry to have missed some of your recent posts. I was sure I had commented on the Puffin post but it seems it must have got lost, probably due to my broadband problems. Puffins are my favourite sea bird and your photos were stunning! I also loved the Fulmar photos, so pretty with the flowers.

    It was particularly nice to see the photos your brother took of you and your monster lens :-) I hope you enjoyed your holiday, I've never been there but have always wanted to.
