Razorbill – 1949

Alca torda britannica

Mathew describes it as a common summer resident, but less numerous than Guillemot or Puffin, and mentions the following breeding stations: Caldey, St Margaret’s, Skokholm, Skomer, Grassholm, Ramsey and various mainland cliffs.  Breeds today in suitable sites from Cemmaes Head to Caldey.  Decreased during the recent war, probably because of oil-pollution.
