Gannets are very common nesting birds in Iceland. In the winter the Gannet flies to the coasts of Europe, but there is a small part of the population that stays on the sea south of Iceland. The Northern Gannet is a seabird and stays out on the open sea but stays on land while the nesting season lasts from April to May. It is the biggest seabird in Europe with wing span from 170-180 cm and the bird itself is about 90-100 cm long. Gannets are monogamous birds and are faithful to their nesting place.
