The RSPB say that Gannets are: “…distinctively shaped with a long neck and long pointed beak, long pointed tail, and long pointed wings.” I note the use of the words ‘long’ and ‘pointed’.

I like this shot with the out of focus flying Gannet in the background:

This one gave a definite peck with, you guessed it, its long and pointed beak:

The wind conditions are just right as the Gannets begin to accumulate just in front of us as we sit at the edge of the cliffs:

They are stacked as neatly as if air traffic control was guiding them:

They are unearthly creatures:
