Not snow but Gannets

By johnsd  
The Bass Rock in the Firth of Forth is home to around 150000 Northern Gannets during the breeding season, making it the largest colony in the world.
The 'rock' has been the site for a home of a Christian hermit (600AD),chapel, castle and prison etc over the years and is now uninhabited as the lighthouse is now unmanned as well.

May I thank everyone who viewed, C & V and awarded yesteday's Yellowhammer.
This I appreciate very much.
