Scientists have captured footage of what it is like to fly with the UK's largest seabird.
Researchers at Grassholm natural reserve in Wales attached miniature cameras to gannets nesting in the area, hoping to shed some light on the birds' behaviour.
The footage shows the seabirds flying high above the Pembrokeshire coastline while ships pass below.
"Seabirds spend most of their time at sea away from their nesting sites, making them difficult to study," scientist Steve Votier said.
The lightweight camera works alongside a GPS unit that tracks birds' flights and measures how long they are flying, feeding or resting.
It also revealed how the birds make use of waste from fishing boats, and captured the gannets' high-speed dives to catch fish.
Conservationists believe the results could help to inform the protection of marine species in Wales.
"The goal is to continue this work in the long term to help provide a sustainable future for gannets and other marine life," Mr Votier said.
