Juvenile Gannet


I have been saying for some time now that the juvenile plumage is my favourite Gannet plumage (though adults are good, too). When I say it, though, most people think I am nuts and that juves are brown and scruffy. But take a look at this pristine example and admire its neat rows of spots and glory in its majesty. You have to admit that when you look closely, this is a good-looking Gannet! (Or perhaps I am nuts)

Looking at that photo I would have to agree with you - a fine looking Gannet.
