Fulmar Oil is a foul smelling liquid. It is ejected by adults and young a a form of defence - however it is also used - mixed with regurgitated food or feeding the young birds. It is rich in Vitamin A & D. The smell of fulmars is said to stay on oil-stained clothing for many years. St Kilda was the first known nesting site for this seabird in the UK. It holds a huge population with over 64,000 pairs.
