Where to see Fulmars in this area

From mid-January to September they are plentiful around the high cliffs of this coast. In the remaining months they are more likely to be out at sea - but you still see the occasional bird close to land.

  • Ilfracombe - You can see them fly past any part of the coastline but Torrs Walk to the west or Rillage Point to the east are the best for seeing them nest. You'll need a telescope to see any detail at the nest sites - they like inaccessible ledges. However you can get good views of the adult birds as they glide past the cliffs.
  • Lundy Island
  • Lynton & Lynmouth
  • You are virtually guaranteed to see a Fulmar on any of the boat trips on the Bristol Channel
