Northern Gannets Near Surtsey Island, Vestmannaryar, Iceland

  1. The isolated island stacks between Heimaey & Surtsey Islands in Vestmannaryar off the southern coast of Iceland make great nesting places for Northern Gannets. We were able to sail nearby.

    Those are all Gannets:

    The Gannets made close passes to our ship (all D70 70-300VR @300mm uncropped):
