The Great Northern Gannet

Northern Gannets are powerful and fast flying birds who are capable of gliding just above the surface of the water for hours – though they are not as efficiently built for takeoff and landing. Though they tend not to fly over the Project Puffin islands, they are often sighted diving for fish offshore or cruising to their next hunting grounds.
