Northern Gannet

Norther Gannet.

The images in this gallery where taken on Bass Rock off the east coast of Scotland and at Bempton Cliffs, RSPB Reserve on the east coast of England in Yorkshire. I am sure you will agree that the gannets are magnificent birds and have an amazing life stye.
First-year birds migrate south in autumn earlier than those from gantries further north, many to waters off northwest Africa and some as far south as Senegal, while others move into Mediterranean Waters, perhaps more readily than juveniles from more northern colonies. Davis Attenborough said of Bass Rock Bass Rock has to be the eighth wonder of the Natural World. 120,000 birds nest on the small island in the Fourth Estuary.
The gannets will fly as far as seventy or eighty miles to find food before returning to the nest to feed their young.
