'Shaggy' the Shag

All Shags which find their way inland along the Nene as far as the Peterborough area or along the Welland as far as the Deepings are invariably called Shaggy. This is the bird Ed and I found the other day, while fishing near the 'green bridge' near where the Deeping High Bank road leaves the Welland towards Spalding. It has roosted on the White Cliffs of Crowland (the water tower by the Crowland Bridge) for the last three nights, including last night.
