Kittiwakes are such good value photographically. Their plumage is, I think, stunning in its simplicity and boldness. The black wing tip feathers are so dramatic against the white body feathers and that beautiful yellow beak is a delightful counterpoint. These were all shot on Inner Farne in Northumberland and each image was taken in the midst of a dense sea fret.
