Australasian Gannet

Australasian Gannet
Comment:The 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.
