What an astonishing stroke of luck! Chris Park had just texted me to say he had a juvenile Gannet flying over Ferry Meadows so I thought I'll take a look out of my office window to see if anything was passing and there was a 3rd calendar year Gannet flying straight towards me heading down Broadway towards Peterborough town centre! I quickly grabbed the compact camera and started firing away more in hope than anything else and this is the result. I hope the bird doesn't suffer too much from the wire it seems to have got entangled with.
Gannet Morus bassanus, 3rd cal year
