Mediterranean Shag

I'm almost embarrassed to put this photo from my mobile phone in today........but it is a Mediterranean shag (Phaloacrocorax aristotelis ssp. desmarestii) and it seems to be happy fishing in the main harbour with all the water taxis, day trip boats etc that are filling the harbour. Very unusual bird and a treat to see.
