Gannets

Gannet 1

I thought today I would show some sketches of another type of fisherman- Northern Gannet.

I did these sketches a few years ago on the Saltee Islands off the Wexford coast. A brilliant place to practice sketching birds as during the breeding season there are thousands of Gannet, Guillemot,Razorbill, Puffin, all very approachable if you are patient and can stand the smell.
