A Kittiwake and a Fulmar in Flight

On the 3rd April 2021

A Fulmar and a Kittiwake together from Tynemouth.

 

“Very different colours and their tails and wings form unique shapes”

The Fulmars were hanging their legs down at times.  Maybe this was too slow themselves down.  Both species were great to watch whilst showcasing their ‘flight dance’. Well worth experiencing.
