A few weeks ago I had a great opportunity to go on a landing trip to Bass Rock, which is the largest single island gannet colony in the world.
After climbing up many steps, and through much grime and 'guano' covering those steps we got to walk alongside all the breeding birds there.
I was extremely lucky when my friend spotted this couple fencing, which is a courtship behaviour that the breeding birds carry out throughout the breeding season. So I quickly seased the opportunity to photograph this excellent behaviour.
I've entered this photo in the BBC countryfile competition, hope it does well.
Hope you like it too.
