Isle of Noss, Shetland Island; Gannets

The sandstone cliffs, laced with honeycomb ledges, tower 81 m above the sea-cave below. During breeding season, these ledges are consumed with guillemots, puffins, razorbills & skuas making it one of the most spectacular breeding colonies in Scotland. Unfortunately, old fishing line and plastic bags can be seen weaved into the nests of these seabirds. This can entangle the birds leaving them vulnerable to mother nature and natural predators.
