Gannets Nest building

 

May 2012

 Saltee is one of the best islands for photographing Gannets and I had a good couple of sessions with this charismatic bird, capturing plenty of breeding behaviour from courtship displaying to gathering vegetation for nest building. Saltee is also fantastic for Razorbill and Guillemot. I had time on this trip to coincide with the start of the breeding season as it is by far the best time.
