Not many Shag's get found locally these days with generally only one or two putting in an appearance with the Pier being one of the traditional sites. This bird appeared only briefly on the falling tide
Shag, Fair Isle, June 2014
To be honest the breeding Shag's on Fair Isle were not the most accessible with this breeding plumaged bird being photographed at a rather acute angle, I must improve on this species.
Shag, Fair Isle, May 2016
As with my previous spring attempts with the Shags on Fair Isle they were not always the most accessible, often looking straight down the cliff at them.
