SH-50 - Gannets with Chicks
Dec 28, 2013

I specifically went to Muriwai Beach for the third time this year to see some chicks, but while I was there I never saw them, not these -

The chicks are the fluff balls you see under the chests of the adults.

Since I did not recognise the chicks when my camera saw them, I tried to get some Gannets In Flight (GIFs) -

There are 24 pictures of gannets and their colony starting here -

I did get a reasonable video, after editing 22 minutes down to just under 13 -

I will have to construct some temporary hood before my next visit to Muriwai Beach. Not seeing the chicks when my camera captures them is embarrassing.
