22/06/16 Guillemot chick "Obsession", Lundy

Ten days since I first saw this chick, "Obsession" is growing well. Its parents (standing to the right) spent over an hour together at the ledge. This shows that they are all well fed, even with the mist and drizzle they are able to find their way back to Lundy with fish for "Obsession"

Ten chicks have  hatched so far this year, and there may be another three eggs left. So far, the signs are well- the adults are spending time together on the ledge and they are bringing in good numbers of Sprats for their chicks.
