Australasian Gannet (Morus serrator)

From my visit to Muriwai last Friday. It was quite windy, and in such conditions it is especially fascinating to watch the gannets fly.


  1. Wow Paul, that is a magnificent shot. It’s no easy taking birds in flight and absolutely in focus. Well done!

  2. YES! top marks for a brilliant photo.
    These birds are magnificent, and we are very lucky to have them so close to enjoy in Auckland.

  5. That is a good photo of a bird in flight. Never seen this type of bird before.
