Nigel the lonely gannet found dead beside his concrete love
[Stuff] Nigel the gannet died as he lived, alone on the cliffs of Mana Island, surrounded by fake birds.
Last week, Nigel's body was found in the nest he had made for his partner ‐ the concrete decoy he courted for the past four years ‐ on the island off the Porirua coast.
Ranger Chris Bell discovered the dead gannet and said he was "incredibly sad" to lose him, just as three real birds had joined the colony.
