The Gannet Hatchery

Gannets live in a colony on Cape Grant and fly across the precinct to feed through the day and fly home to Cape Grant in the evenings. They are guarded by two Maremma dogs who protect them from foxes and other predators

Tours of the gannet colony run by arrangement.

The gannets are magnificent birds that have glorious yellow heads and necks.
