Muriwai Gannet Colony

Muriwai is a West Auckland beach and this is a photo of a viewing platform with a Gannet overhead. There were some tourists as most times.

I would follow one Gannet at a time with my camera and just shoot pictures.

    • Thanks so much Ghostwriter, I think Gannets are one of the bravest birds. The first thing a Gannet chick is to attempt flying off a thousand foot cliff, but they do practice flying on the flat first. I really hope that they all make it.
      In a day a Gannet can fly 500 miles there and 500 miles back just to get food for themselves and their young.
