Gannet research- on this weekend of rain and winds, and climate talks, a reminder of the wonderful flight-powers of Gannets around our coast. Some recent research, called ‘Track-a-Gannet’ or TAG, has discovered that our Gannets can fly up to 500 miles in 36 hours in search of food. The research should help in the long-term planning of wind-farm sites, as well as in lobbying for larger Marine Reserves. Conditions: Blustery with heavy rain spells over whole weekend. Temperature: Max 10- Min 4c.p.bempton.12 174p.bempton.12 171DSC01265IMG_0388
