Eldey is one of the biggest Gannet colonies in the Atlantic.
British fishermen and sailors called the Eldey island "Count Rock" and "Flour Sack".

And a Great Auk memorial art.
The Great Auk (Pinguinus impennis) was a large, flightless bird of the alcid family that became extinct in the mid-19th century.
