Our newest camera, ‘GannetCam’, looks over the Les Etacs Gannet colony home to around 6,000 pairs of Northern Gannets from February to October each year, just 350 metres from the West cliffs of Alderney. GannetCam primarily focuses on Gannets nesting on ‘Pyramid Rock’, the closest rock in this magnificent seabird city to the mainland. The camera’s powerful zoom also shares images from the rest of the colony including guillemots on the lower reaches of ‘North Stack High’ and the dynamic tidal environment around the colony with occasional sightings of dolphins!
We hope you enjoy the views from GannetCam where you can follow the entire breeding story of each bird from courtship to fledging of chicks later in the season as well as magnificent behavioural interactions between individuals.
