The fulmar is a white and grey seabird which is very much gull-like but related to the albatrosses. They are a relatively sociable bird and are often found feeding out at sea in flocks.
They have an extremely unique way of defending their nests, by spitting out a foul-smelling oil at any intruders.
Their diets mainly consist of crustaceans, fish waste and sand eels.
