Visit to Cape Kidnappers Gannet Colony
Sad to see this on the bluff and obvious that there is a fishing line of some sort which probably is from a long liner out fishing off the Tohe.
Going north and south the same day will @pjd1.

Gannets are seabirds comprising the genus Morus, in the family Sulidae, closely related to boobies. "Gannet" is derived from Old English ganot "strong or masculine", ultimately from the same Old Germanic root as "gander". Morus is derived from Ancient Greek moros, "foolish", due to the lack of fear shown by breeding gannets and boobies allowing them to be easily killed.
