In the afternoon we monitored the Gannets from a much safer distance, although sitting on the rocks isn't all that much more comfortable! But at least the sun had burnt through the fog of the morning and it was a much nicer afternoon.

This was to continue our productivity monitoring. Vicky and I monitor 5 plots of Gannets between us totalling over 250 individual nests. Some of them have chicks that are still too small to see very well, but we have already seen lots of chicks on our plots. We are sure we will see a lot more as the chicks become bigger and easier for us to spot at such a distance.
