Fulmars are an ever-present sight off the cliffs of Berry Head, numbers build in the breeding season from May.
In the winter enjoy them reeling in the air off the end of the headland. They breed in the quarry and on the guillemot cliff from May and are often still on chicks in August.
The Fulmar is not in the gull family but the petrel and shearwater family. If threatened when on a nest it will regurgitate an oily fishy substance over the predator – including unsuspecting climbers!
