Feeding like Gannets

A change in the local bird life over the last couple of days when stiff winds out in the Minch brought flocks of Gannets to feed in the sheltered waters around Glenelg Bay and Kyle Rhea. One of the best things to see in the natural world, when they fold their wings and drop like arrows to the sea. Back to calm this morning so they have headed for wider seas.

Ready for the drop.

Fed and ready to take off for more
