Dancing Razorbill

When visiting the Farne Islands the main species I want to photograph is my favourite seabird, the puffin.  This year I decided to tear myself away from the puffins and concentrate on some of  the other species that breed on the Island.  I was photographing the guillemots when I noticed this razorbill lining up it's approach to land, there was very little wind so it was a bit of a crash landing.  Makes for a very comical pose.
