GOOD FENCES - Great Saltee Island (Part 12 ) Gannet Colony and VIDEO

By now, bloggers following my posts know I am on Great Saltee Island without any fences so we will have to think a big ‘Out of the box’ today!!  So this first photograph was actually taken by Danny as I wedged my feet against this small wall/rock/fence to take shots of this Gannet colony and discovered some chicks in the process.  Enjoy the Gannet images and VIDEO with their young.

I hope you enjoyed the Gannets and thanks for visiting as well as those who leave comments.

  1. Their face and beak markings are beautiful! And a wonderful fluffy chick! The pictures are really worth all the discomfort you had to go through to snap them, ouch! The closeup of the two together is definitely my favorite!
