Gannets nest on Bass Rock in the Firth of Forth on June 18, 2012 in Dunbar, Scotland. Every January Atlantic gannets start returning to Bass Rock, with 150,000 or more making it the largest single rock gannet colony. They return with the same mate and often use the same nest each year, spending most of the year on the Rock they then leave at the end of October, when the last of the chicks travel down to the West Coast of Africa.
