Shag @ Dog

A couple of weekends ago I headed off to Norfolk (see the Dovekies below) with Ray and Will Bowell. As we were crossing the Nene on the A47 on the very edge of the PBC area (at Ring's End), we spotted a Shag out of the window. Will got some shots, but it flew upstream and we lost it. However, our prediction that it would eventually reach the Dog in a Doublet sluice came true when Jonathan Taylor found what was presumably the same bird there a couple of days later. A week on it was still there and I paid my respects on Saturday morning (11.11.06), while everyone else was headign to Devon to feast on the UK's first Long-billed Murrelet...
