On this day (June 4th)... 2012 Gannet!!

One of the most unexpected birds of recent years was this wind blown Gannet, found the previous day and still there #OnThisDay  June 4th 2012

It had to be a repeat visit with no rain and hopefully the Gannet was destined to stay overnight? It did!
The light was better and here's a representative sequence (it was mostly sat distantly on the water during the 5 hour session!)

Heading my way.....

The upperwing has to be the most appealing view!

Not always easy to remain locked on the Gannet with trees in the background but they show off the bird much better than white sky!

Only a couple of fish were caught during the session - too distant to record!
