Prince Leopold Island - Black Guillemots Fill the Air
All those black dots in the cloud above us are Black Guillemots that nest in this region. The more eroded and irregular cliffs here give better access and more shelter than the sheer exposed faces further along the coast. Difficult to show in a still photograph, you have to imagine constant movement overhead.
