Out of the Jurisdiction: Shetland Islands (Lerwick)

Now to cross the North Sea and spend some time moving down the east coast of Great Britain.
The first stop was in Lerwick, the biggest town in the Shetland Islands.
I took a boat ride to see birds.  Too many for one post.  Let's just see gannets.




Gannets roost by the thousands on cliff sides.


Bouncing boat, fast moving birds.  I won't tell you how many images 
had to be taken and deleted to get these.


And, immature male gannets hang around on the playground,
just like many other species.
