Noss, Shetland, Scotland, United Kingdom

A Northern Gannet (Sula Bassana) dives into the dark waters of the North Sea off the cliffs of Noss. Northern Gannet have increased by adapting to the human fishing industry. They use rope from nets for nesting and will feed on surplus fish. The birds closely follow fishing boats and dive near nets. In this instance the birds are attracted to discarded fish thrown back into the sea from a trawler.
