The monocled Murre. This is a bridled morph of the Common Guillemot aka Common Murre (Uria aalge). The percentage of bridled morphs rises the further north you go. When viewed in large you can just about make out the reflection of the cliffs and the fat fool that hung over them to take the image! (Don't try this at home kids!).
