Shag at Ferry Meadows

While I was getting the moths from my trap, this morning, my friend Don Gardener was having a great time finding seabirds in Peterborough. First, he scored a fly-over Gannet and minutes later (just while I was extracting the Antler below), he called to say he thought he had a Shag at Ferry Meadows. The juvenile Shag was still there when I passed by on my way to work and back again this evening, when I took these ropey digiscoped shots through my baby-scope (an old Kowa 621, non-ED job I keep for cycling through FM, but have never digiscoped through before).
It is the first bird I have added to my local year list since the end of May!
