Taxidermy case of adult male and adult female Northern Fulmar. According to Edward Hart, writing on 1 May 1927, 'Left (no 1): adult male, January 1880; right (no.= 2): adult female, November 1863. No 1 Struck a telegraph wire near Bournemouth, no 2 Shot by me in Christchurch Bay. The islanders of St. Kilda capture this bird and whilst living squeeze from its throat a little oil - a tablespoonful or so, which is considered to be an infallible remedy for chronic rheumatism. Sexes alike, summer and winter plumage the same. Mounted by me'.
