View of the islands


Bass Rock
The rock is all white because of the breeding colony of more than 150,000 Gannets! The sky above the rock is also white with many pairs of black dots moving around. That day was clear so that I could draw this using telescope from the tip of the North Berwick.

The flat May island and steep-sided Bass Rock. I learned that Gannets only nest on the Bass Rock because they need steep cliff and strong wind to take off from the land.
