Shag
Phalacrocorax aristotelis
River Nene, Dog-in-a-Doublet sluice, Cambs.
18 December 2003

Jonny Taylor (RSPB) comes up trumps again when his daily stop at the Dog-in-a-Doublet sluice this morning sees him staring at one of the PBC areas most sought after regulars - a Shag.

Althoguh annual, all recent records in the PBC area have been of short stayers - minutes rather than hours or days!

A more than welcome addition to my PBC list (208) and 184 for the year (previous PBC record was 182 set by me last year).

Nikon Coolpix 995 + Leica Apo Televid 77 with 20xWA
