Adult gannets seen at the UK's largest mainland breeding colony. The breeding season finishes in august, after which they can be seen often in large numbers around the UK. If you see a group of gannets diving into the sea, look closely and you may well see dolphins feeding on the same fish.

As well as being the largest colony at bempton doesn't it count as the smallest as well. Am I correct in thinking it is the only mainland breeding colony?
The RSPB website (http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/birdguide/name/g/gannet/index.aspx) informs me that there is a second mainland colony also in scotland at Troup Head, but I must admit I havent been there so I couldnt swear to it.
Bempton is England's only breeding colony of Northern gannets, there is a mainland colony in Scotland. It is not the smallest there are smaller colonies.
