A Good Year for Gannets

A trip into the North Sea this weekend paid dividends. More about the sightings later however one species we saw in abundance were Gannets. We were surrounded by them. Not only dashing white adults but lots and lots of darker juveniles; first year birds, giving an indication of a good breeding year on the Yorkshire coast and beyond. As the birds first hung in the wind and then plummeted into the sea targeting a Herring Shoal the sea became peppered with the plumes of their splashes.

    A great capture and it keeps me returning to see that crystal clear shot.
