SATURDAY CRITTERS - Great Saltee Island (Part 13 ) Shag and Razorbill

Today I am mainly showing you the Shags with their young in stills and video although you will also see Razorbill.   The images and video were shot on Great Saltee Island, Wexford, Ireland.









If the video does not appear below CLICK HERE.   



I hope you enjoyed seeing the Shag with their young.

I am linking this post with SATURDAY CRITTERS.

Tomorrow I will show you a sequence of shots of a Gannet landing into the colony.

Many thanks for your visit and also your comments.

  1. What a cracking portrait. Is it only Irish Shags that have green eyes?
