Abstract
    A pair of Common Guillemots Uria aalge with a small chick adopted a second and successfully reared both to normal fledging age. A single day's feeding watch suggested that the pair doubled the normal feeding rate and the adults spent little time together at the nest-site, though the chick was never left unattended.
