Gannets Diving for Fish

Clip: Season 37 Episode 10 | 2m 6s

These versatile birds thrive in the air and sea. With their six-foot long wingspan, gannets can hover, glide, soar and dive. With folded wings, they torpedo down to depths of 20 feet or more to snatch fish from the edges of the Faroe Islands shoal.
