The two Fulmars are closely related seabirds occupying the same niche in different oceans. The Northern Fulmar (Fulmarus glacialis) or just Fulmar lives in the north Atlantic and north Pacific, whereas the Southern Fulmar, (Fulmarus glacialoides) is, as its name implies, a bird of the southern oceans. These birds look superficially like gulls, but are unrelated, and are in fact petrels. The northern species is grey and white with a yellow bill, 43–52 cm (17–20 in) in length with a 102–112 cm (40–44 in) wingspan.[4] The southern form is a paler bird with dark wing tips, 45–50 cm (18–20 in) long, with a 115–120 cm (45–47 in) wingspan

A very nice capture of this pretty bird ... interesting to read your information, looking indeed like a gull but belonging to the petrel family ... fine sharp details, well lit !!!
greetings, Adele

A good shot of the Fulmar . It doesn't look like they have lots of nesting room on the rocks. Good colours and details
cheers Jeni
