An excellent portrait of the gannet.

A t the same time it's a sad statement about the way we pollute our world.

great detail, almost comical as a picture with the wrapper. I am finding Gannets quite fascinating viewing your pics of them, would like to return to the Farnes but not sure I could make it again, perhaps I can find an easier place to get me some pics

Well, It made me laught. I have found amazing things in birds nests. Like the filling of an old matress we wanted to burn

Comments about pollution (which I totally agree with of course) but at the same time the Gannets are squabbling over it so they must be pleased to have it. Interesting.

Great image, Mike.
