New Beginnings

This guillemot chick has to jump from the top of the cliffs to be with it's parent. The adult can better protect the chick in the water from all the herring gulls on land trying to distract the adult and get an easy meal.   Now safely with it's parent they will head out to sea. Hopefully this little chick will return to the island to raise it's own family.
