What bird is this ?

          Staying on St. Michaels Mount and following on from yesterday’s poke around in the files, I quite easily caught this bird on camera.  It appeared to be snoozing after a dip in the sea.

          Can anyone tell me what bird it is please ?

  1. Hallysann, its a Shag, a smaller relative of the Cormorant. And it likes rocky coasts like the one you’ve shown it on here. It eats fish, which it very speedily and acrobatically pursues underwater. Adrian
