Description:

Various ages of Gannet. I think here there are examples of juvenile, 2nd calendar year, 3rd calendar year and 4th calendar year birds - although ageing and molt of seabirds is always more complex than it seems in the books.
Location is very approximate (about one hour out of Aberdeen on the Aberdeen - Kirkwall - Lerwick ferry service).
