Rare black guillemot in the North Sea


This 19 February 2020 shows a black guillemot in the North Sea off the Dutch coast.

Black guillemots are rare off the Dutch coast. If they are seen, they are usually in winter plumage with lots of white feathers.

However, the one in this video is in summer plumage, almost all black.
