Just up ahead on the right is a small rock that sticks above the water and almost always has a mixed group of cormorants standing atop it drying out their feathers. This long necked black bird dives in the water and uses its feet to swim but unlike the puffins and other alcids has no oil in its feathers to aid in drying off. So they stand out on rocks to get dry.
Just up ahead on the left you will see a rock with many gulls on top of it and some cormorant nests on the side. The gulls are Glaucous winged gulls.
