Birding for a while before hotel breakfast. The Gannets are also hungry but the Eiders still sleep. It was interesting to see the Gannet actually formed the V on this morning trip to the feeding ground. Flying close to the water.
From my trip to Scotland 2 year ago.

  1. I've tried a couple of times this year to get out and find a reported northern gannet in our area of the world without luck. Great shares this time...is it Monica? I seem to recall your name is Monica...not sure.
