It is great to be starting a new blog using a new format. Lets see how it goes.
The photograph is of Little Skellig, the smaller of the two Skelligs off the coast of Kerry in the Atlantic Ocean. This is a bare rock jutting out of the water. Even the monks didn't consider it as a possible hermitage site. But the gannets think different. These hugh sea birds with up to 2 metre wing span, have taken over Little Skellig. From the distance the rock looks like it has been dusted in sugar, there are so many birds nesting here. And above the rock they fill the sky. It is a truly amazing sight. This is the largest colony of these elegant sea birds in Ireland.
