The gannet is indigenous to NZ, rather than an endemic species. So they are also found in Australia. There is a very nice colony near Muriwai, close to Auckland.

They are a bit of a pleasure to photograph because unlike most of our forest birds, they’re big and don’t hide in the forest canopy. You just have to point the camera at the birds and track it fly.
On the other hand they can really move, so the trick here is to photograph them when they’re flying upwind.
