I went to Walthamstow today for a Shag. Had a Shag on West Warwick. A Shag in London is pretty rare. Hawky and I had a Shag round the back of the Reservoirs. Shagging in East London. Best Shag I've had in ages..... frankly the possibilities are endless. Suffice it to say it's only the second Shag I've had in London. Oh, there I go again, whoops. Anyway, the small Cormorant-like bird - somewhat of a rarity in London - showed quite well, and I managed a couple of high-ISO snaps of it in crappy light. If you want to see it, go sooner rather than later as I am told they all die eventually, though this one has been there nine days so far and still looks pretty chirpy to me. The last one I saw, indeed the first and until today only one, was on East Warwick, so my Warwick Reservoir Shag list is now complete. Happy days. That one was rubbish as it stayed on a raft right in the middle the whole time. This bird was a most obliging Shag, coming multiple times right up to the edge and giving great views. Or you could just say Fnarr fnarr and have done with it.
Shagged out just reading this. Have a good Christmas mate.ReplyDelete
