How cute is this little chick! We’re really looking forward to getting back out and seeing these again. Cardigan Island is home to lots of visiting Guillemots and pictured here is a chick brave enough to show itself behind its parent. Guillemots spend their life out at sea and come to land only to nest. The young are called “jumplings” as they leave the nest before they can fly by jumping (or bouncing) into the water below when they’re around 3 weeks old, then head out to sea with their Dad.
