A Gannet

A few months ago Martin Lockley visited Pembrokeshire and Skokholm again and on his way home to America called in at Hay on Wye - a regular pilgrimage for an avid map and book collector.  This time he bumped into a taxidermist who was selling a gannet and he bought it and donated it to Skokholm.

It now sits in the library on the island.  We don't know where it came from originally and it may migrate to the lighthouse where there is more space but just maybe its a Grassholm gannet.
