Both parents bring food to the chick; the commonest item is Sandeels which the parents catch by diving. Having caught a Sandeel, it is held between the tongue and upper mandible, enabling the bird to catch another, and another. On Skomer, the normal num-ber of fish carried back to the nest at each visit is about 10, but the world record is 80 (albeit small larval fish), recorded on an island in northern Norway. Most chicks re-ceive some five to eight feeds a day, each averaging about eight grams.
