This photo shows a razorbill - beak full of sand eels - on Staple Island in the Farne Islands. The Farne Islands provide an important habitat for nesting sea birds on the east coast of the United Kingdom, attracting hundreds of thousands of tourists as a result. Organisations such as the National Trust, which owns and manages some of these islands, must weigh up the benefits obtained through tourism with any potential disruption these visitors may pose to the birds' breeding season.
