Life On The Rocks

At the mouth of the Firth of Forth sits and ancient volcanic island, home to the world's largest colony of Gannets; The Bass Rock. For three years from 1960, June Nelson and her late husband Bryan called it their home, intimately studying the birds and their behaviours. June reflects on their time together and the catastrophic loss of global seabird populations in the years since.
