Isle of May guillemots Details

With around 45,000 guillemots (Uria aalge) present during the spring and summer, the Isle of May is an important breeding colony for these large auks. Guillemots, or murres, spend most of their time at sea, only coming ashore to breed. They make no nest, but lay a single egg on the bare rock of cliff faces. Bridled guillemots with a white ring around the eye are a polymorphism that represent about 10% of the population on the Isle.
