Guillemots are perfectly adapted to live life on the edge. Even their beautiful speckled-blue or white eggs are unusually pear-shaped to reduce the risk of them rolling off the perilous cliff ledges where they are laid. The sheer heights of this great seabird city can be appreciated with each turn of the vase, as these dignified birds stand, fly, swoop and squawk, bustling for space in their black dinner suits. Silvery fish swim in shoals 400-feet below, utterly unaware that these curious birds will dive down and use their wings to swim after their prey in Life on the Edge.
