The distinct shape and size of the Gannet will usually stand out when scanning gulls and other birds out at sea. Being largely bright white in colour with black wingtips, they have a distinctive long neck and long pointed beak, a long pointed tail, and long pointed wings. This Gannet was seen flying over the reserve on a blustery day, travelling on the wind with ease, hardly beating its wings.
