The Story: 

There are some fantastic gannets colonies in Shetland and they aggressively hunt herrings or mackerels in the morning. Normally Shetland has very rough sea conditions even summer time, and you could have very small chance to see this great Gannets feeding action. I was really lucky to capture this moment. In 2022 60% of Gannets suffered bird flue and it had a big impact on the gannets population in Shetland. They recovered very well in 2023. I was so happy to see that great numbers of gannets are fighting to get herrings for survival.
