Black-legged Kittiwake Rissa tridactyla

Description

Taking a few quick shots from a ferry I assumed these were more Common Gull (Larus canus - Mew Gull), but now looking at the shots I think they are kittiwakes. I was not expecting that species in this plumage this time of year. Anyone think differently?

This duck was 150 yards out on a lake. With the camera I was trying to turn it into a Tufted Duck, but looking at the severely cropped images I think just a Ring-necked Duck.

What a difference between these Graylag Geese and the ones you see in parks in the U.S. I could not get within 200 meters of these birds before they flushed. These were wintering birds having reentry arrived from breeding populations in Iceland.

About 25 Grey Seals were hauled out near the South Lighthouse. 5th shot shows the area where the seals were in a view from the headlands which we had hiked to soon afterwards. The seals were just to the right of the abandoned buildings on the black rocks.

several hundred yards away. The 2nd image shows the scene. These stacks of rocks are prime nesting areas for Atlantic Puffins in the summer, but all the puffins are gone by August. The GBBG was on top of the flat rock stack in the center.
