S/he is surely a vociferous ball of fluff! Such a demanding child! Mum does look worn ragged with all her hard work.
I was talking earlier with my friend Lin, who is on Alderney right now, they have been tagging Gannett's (I think I've got the species right, I have checked back, definitely Gannett's) any way, one parent was tracked to the coast of Norway and back to fetch fish for the offspring! Rather remarkable determination to do the best for the chick!
We have gannets at my favourite reserve - Bempton Cliffs. They are absolutely magnificent birds.
I hope you like this picture (which I have posted before, so many apologies if you have already seen it!). The middle two birds are "having fun" - but just look at the expression on the beak of the "voyeur" at the back
