Gannets Feeding Off Aberconwy Beach

  • Spent an hour or more watching over a dozen Gannets feeding off Aberconwy beach on Sunday 30th of April. Tide was receding and the diving pack were feeding in the channel about 400 yards out. Spectacular and unexpected sighting! Sorry, no camera so no pictures. anyone else witness this?
  • Hi Glen, yes a few people reported Gannets off the west side of the Great Orme and Penmaenmawr last weekend, so your sighting ties in well with that. Possible that the northwesterly wind that blew at the end of the previous week had pushed them closer inshore than usual.

  • Just back at the beach and the gannets are still here!
