These gannets are being photographed on the Bass Rock in the Firth of Forth, Edinburgh. You can see that the zodiac has gone in to get closer. Fortunately this was part of a Zegrahm Expedition who have an ethical and highly responsible attitude to not disturbing or upsetting wildlife. If you're thinking of going expedition cruising please make sure the operator you choose has this attitude. Most of them do but the problem can come from us the guests with over zealousness or excitement at the time can cause distress and if your not careful a violent reaction.
