Birds at Bass Rock

Bass Rock, Firth of Forth, Scotland, August 2016 and April 2019

There are a few places where I just cannot resist returning and taking more photos. Bass Rock is one of those – either gazing out from the coast, or getting closer by boat. The gannets rule the roost out there and in the summer there is no chance of not realising that. At peak season, the island is home to over 150,000 gannets, making it the world’s largest colony of northern gannets.
