The gannet appears to be attempting to land in the updraft blowing up the cliff driven by a northerly storm. Feet out as air-brakes, most of wing at the stall, wing tips still in laminar air-flow and tail wiggling and flapping frantically to keep control. Most airplane pilots long for the degree of control of the air that this bird shows.

Avelino this is not the moment of attack, as gannets dive into the sea with their beak out, neck straight and wings folded back and grab fish up to several metres under the sea - it looks painful but it is spectacular as they dive from a cruising altitude of about 30 metres or more.
