Shag Popping Up from Nowhere

By georgehopkins    
First of all this seabird was not disturbed on its nest on one of the remote farne islands. We had been taking pics of the seabirds on the steep cliffs and decided to take a lunch break, I sat down in a hollow in the rocks out of the sea breeze. Must have been there around 10 mins before I noticed this shag about 6 feet away watching me eat my sandwiches (Tuna). It was just a matter of sitting upright with the camera to get the shot, the parent didn't seem at all bothered of me being there, one of those close encounter moments with wildlife.
