These feeding gannets were viewed out to sea and drawn with me standing, steadying the telescope against the wind.

Just out to sea – many gannets suddenly congregate. They turn, wings outstretched then slip into a dive, wings held behind tail, neck outstretched. They can be seen as a trace of bubbles below water before they surface. Wings beating they stretch up their body and necks to swallow. Then they take off into the wind to repeat this or fly off, sated.
