Bass Rock 2011

Bass Rock has the biggest population gannets on one rock in the world. There are 150.000 of them.
Only with a guide you're allowed to land here.
It is really special to be in the midst of these impressive birds. They tolerate the people who come to visit them as long as they don't come too close.
The birds reach the adult age at six years and may become 34 years old.
This trip again was organised by Han Bouwmeester
