This blog does what it says on the tin - Photos of Razorbills on the Isle of May. 

There are 3 species of Auk on the May, Puffins, Guillemots and Razorbills. Razorbills are the least common of the three, but are probably my favourites, despite the charms of the puffins.

As they mate they utter some very off putting sounds, just be glad you're not a Razorbill.

Although they look black, they are a very dark brown.
