Northern gannets are the largest seabirds in the North Atlantic, with a wingspan of up to 2 metres (6.6 ft). Photographer Andrew Parkinson spent more than 3 months living on the UK’s most Northerly point, in order to capture the story of this beautiful bird. “Every day I would abseil down 90m cliffs before undertaking a treacherous traverse along the base of those cliffs to a tidal boulder field. Once across that I then had a short scramble up to a fantastic gannet colony, its isolation and inaccessibility meant that no photographer had ever worked there before.”
