Our largest seabird, Gannets are found around our coastline from early spring to late autumn. With a wingspan of over 2m, Gannets are all white with black wingtips and a yellow head that almost looks like its powered by pollen. Nesting in four colonies in Ireland; the Little Skelligs, Kerry, the Bull Rock, Cork, Great Saltee Island in Wexford and Ireland’s Eye off Dublin, most birds spend the winter close to the Equator in the mid-Atlantic. Highly specalised, they have forward-facing eyes, cushioning in their skulls to prevent them from being injured when they dive for fish from as high as 40m and can even semi-dislocate their wings to provide a perfect ‘arrow’ as they plunge into the water. This preening bird was photographed on Great Saltee Island in July 2010.
