Abstract/Summary

A photographic survey of the Gannet colonies off the north-west coast of Scotland in 2013 found 60,290 Apparently Occupied Sites (AOS) on St Kilda, 11,230 AOS on Sula Sgeir, 5,280 AOS on the Flannan Islands, 4,550 AOS on Sule Stack and 1,870 AOS on Sule Skerry. Since 2004, numbers had increased rapidly at Sule Skerry and the Flannan Islands (47.4% per annum (pa) and 7.5% pa respectively), but had changed little at Sule Stack and St Kilda. The harvested colony on Sula Sgeir increased by 2.2% pa, reversing the trend over the previous 10 years during which the population declined at 1.2% pa.
