I may tweet or blog about them a lot, but Northern Gannets really are that spectacular of a sight off Stratford Point. The fact they were exceptionally rare anywhere in the state not long ago makes it all the more special. Twan captured these great shots earlier in the week.
It's only a matter of time until we get truly close photos when they come over our heads over land. I had at least 22 of them at Stratford Point on Wednesday! Visit us soon while they're here in such numbers on days with a south or east wind.
