Shag on the Cliff

No it wasn’t a cormorant.

But a big black shag.

Perched on a cliff around the backend of Institute beach

Quite a punkish bird. The cresty tuft on top indicative of a male in mating mode.

Our reward for negotiating the ‘Terrible Torquay Tangle’.

(The first shag we’ve genuinely seen, reliably identified)
