Diving into the Firth
Anyone walking along the path by the golf course or along the beach and at the harbour can not have failed to see the diving birds out at sea. Most of the gulls out there dive and stop on top of the water, feet first, but the Gannets dive head firsts and break the water with their arrow like heads and swim under water in search of their prey. The Gannets normally stay quite far out, so are quite difficult to identify. But when the sun is shing the unmistakable bright white wings with vivid black tips are adult Gannets.
As always, click on the pictures to get an enlarged view of each one.
The two pictures below show them ads they fly over the tanker, just to prove the pictures were taken from Nairn!
