Farne Islands (3) – Razorbills

We love razorbills.  They are the closest living relative of the now extinct Great Auk and the only surviving member of the alca genus which had a much greater diversity three million years ago.  They also choose one mate for life (see featured image).  On Inner Farne we were able to get closer to razorbills than I think we have ever been before.
