The Shag is one of the most numerous breeding seabirds that lives on the islands, distinguished from the Cormorant from it's more slender overall appearance, and the absence of any white cheek patches. They can be seen in large rafts of birds, numbering in their hundreds, as they feed together out at sea over the summer months.
