Thanks for your id Syrphus I

Thanks for your id Syrphus I have added another picture (still rather unclear as it was taken at distance) - this time in profile of the bird moving in the other direction. I agree that the bill does appear chunky although whilst viewing the birds it did not seem to be as prominent.

I think syrphus' point is that the bill is not long and pointed as Guillemot's is.
