Razorbill (Alco torda)

A familar sight on coastal cliffs where it frequently colonises with guillemots etc. The deep, blunt, white lined bill is easily used to identify at close range and the upperparts are black. In flight, a 'white armpit' may be apparent and the feet don't project beyond the tail.
