Shags in Flight

Here are a few shots of a shag in flight taken at the Staple Islands, Inner Farne.  Undoubtedly, one of my favourite shots of the day was the shag coming into land with seaweed in it’s beak.

Shags

Here are a few shots of a shag with chicks taken in the Farne Islands.  Amusingly, the final shot shows a couple of shags doing exactly what there name suggests 🙂

RSPB Ramsey Island – Wales

Here are a few shots of the wildlife I encountered during a two hour boat trip around Ramsey Island, located 1 km off the coast of St David’s Peninsula in Pembrokeshire, Wales.   A RSPB nature reserve, it is home to ravens, peregrines, choughs and buzzards.   During spring guillemots, razorbills, fulmars, kittiwakes and shags come to nest, however by the time I visited the island the cliffs were empty, leading to somewhat limited photographic opportunities .

Isle of Mull Wildlife

To complete my posts on the Isle of Mull, here are a few remaining shots that I could not fit into an individual post.  Shame that the White Tailed Eagle was out of reach despite using my longest lens.  Oh well, maybe next time.
