Gannets  Morus bassanus

Gannets are one of my favourite sea birds. Standing in amongst a gannet colony is an unforgettable experience and I have spent hours just watching them flying backwards and forwards to their nest ledges.

 

Photographng them can be quite challenging but great fun as well.

 

These images were all taken on the small island of Noss, Shetland - a truely wonderful location.
