GANNET

Well what can I say...stuck at work getting texts of big moves of Redwings etc and then a 15 Gannets at gorple I nearly choked..........Got home full kit on wellies... hat... coat..Binns  ...flushed a couple of mipits scanning all the time ,Starlings on the move Redwings heading north west and then a bloody cormorant  ,,how come I get a bloomin cormorant when KM gets 15 gannets I was thinking.....better
have a look at it to see if its an adult or what ever...Bloody Hell its a Juvenile Gannet about 30 foot above the tree line. As it banked sideways a black silloette of long pointed wings and head were surreal against the penine backdrop....................well chuffed..

Nice one Andy, well spotted, could easily have been dismissed as a Cormorant
