Arrow St Ives in May. Are these Fulmars?

I'm clearing out some old pictures and have deleted thousands.
I've just come across these filed under Herring Gulls but they are not Herring Gulls. I don't think they are Gulls and wondered if they may be Fulmars?
The photos were taken on 23 May 2007 near to St Ives, Cornwall, and the birds were at the side of a cliff next to the sea.
I'm afraid as usual picture quality is quite poor. I would have taken a few more shots at the time if I hadn't taken them as Gulls.

Yes, they are. Note the typical bill.
