Shag. They look black but are really green. The white in the background is Razorbill and Guillimot crap running down the rocks. My lens got S___ on, I got S___ on and all for a bird picture.

Great shot! Tough to get a good close up shot of a cormorant like that. Sorry about the bird doodoo...but hey, kind of a fact of the birders life, eh? ;P Gotta happen sometime sooner or later...

Wild Puffin staring me out.

Go, go Puffin! Great shot...especially of these birds...they seem to have been having a really tough time the last couple of years, with huge numbers of them washing up on shores dead. Very sad...no one seems to know why yet, but it started last year, and continued on into this year. Hope it stops before they are gone...

Saw him/her get the kill, but my shots of that were a little blurry because it happened so fast.  But got the 'portrait' afterwards.
