On Saturday 5th at about 1pm, I was just about to steam across to the Inner Farne when I noticed a wintering Black Guillemot resting on the water beside Gun Rock, which is a little rock beside Brownsman and Staple Island.
At first I was not sure as it kept on diving but as we got closer it surfaced just in front of the boat. I shouted at a friend as she had never seen one before. We quickly grabbed the camera's and snapped away.
Anyway here is a few pictures of this lovely bird.
