Even though I was out looking for kingfishers yesterday, I always look to see what other photographic opportunities are around. While playing the hide and seek game with the kingfisher I noticed a couple of shags.
First was a little shag that was busy fishing in the water below me. It wasn’t very successful while I was watching but I did get to see it take a quick bath before jumping out of the water up onto a driftwood branch. I was amused to see it hop from that branch to a rock just a few minutes later looking for a more comfortable place to dry out.
There are usually a lot of shags at this small point by the boatsheds but today there was only the two and not at the same time. The second one was a black shag. He sat there for a few minutes while I clicked away at the shutter and then he was gone.
