Juvenile Gannet - Farmoor, 14th October

A juvenile Gannet arrived at Farmoor during a heavy rain shower at about 17.45 this evening. It scattered all the gulls on F.2. and then sat around on the water for a few minutes looking rather bewildered. It made another circuit of F.2 before moving off at speed over F.1 and disappearing into the gloom.

This is only the sixth for Farmoor, the last in 2002.
