Isle of May razorbills

Stock Photography By Adam Brooker

As one of the rarest auks in the world, the 2500 breeding pairs of razorbills (Alca torda) on the Isle of May are an important stronghold for this species. They are the closest living relative of the extinct great auk (Pinguinis impennis). Razorbills only come ashore to breed, spending most of their time at sea, diving up to 120m to feed on small fish. They pair for life and lay a single egg each year, although less than 70% of chicks survive to fledgling on the Isle of May.
