CommentThe Gannet Rookery at Portland provides a marvellous opportunity for a close encounter with these magnificent birds. They are not at all intimidated by careful human approach and continue to exhibit all their natural behaviours. During our visit this pair showed a considerable range of their mating behaviours which I was able to record. I selected this particular photo as it shows both their behaviour and their distinctive physical features.
EquipmentCanon 5D Mark IV with Canon 100-400 II lens and 1.4x extender at 299 mm, 1/3200, f7.1, ISO 320. Handheld.
