How to identifyAdult Gannets are large and bright white with black wingtips. They are distinctively shaped - with a long neck and long pointed beak, long pointed tail, and long pointed wings. At sea they flap and then glide low over the water, often travelling in small groups. They feed by flying high and circling before plunging into the sea. They breed in significant numbers in only a few locations and are an Amber List species.
