There were some tourists as most times. I would follow one Gannet at a time with my camera and just shoot pictures.

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.

There is another platform there as well. Log in to Reply Thanks for your comment Vidocka Log in to Reply Have you ever met a bird you didn’t like? 1 Log in to Reply No I haven’t. Animals just want to survive. Some birds are bullies in the bird world but to them its simple survival. 1 Log in to Reply survival of the fittest is the law of nature 1 Log in to Reply Hehe, they are looking at the wrong direction.
