Another dull patch, both photographically and weather-wise.
On the South Coast there was a heavy, but not spectacular surf. Just inside the harbour, I found a group of black shags (Phalacrocorax carbo). They seemed to be just hanging about, not fishing or doing anything purposeful. I speculate that they were simply sheltering from the chilly Southerly.
Around the headland a few individual shags were making hard work of getting where they were going. Shags have very small wings for their body weight, and they depend a lot on flying close to the surface of the water to get the “ground effect”. When the surface is heaving up and down, flying requires more effort, and there is a lot of flapping for comparatively little forward motion.
Waves have always fascinated me, especially the long slow ones with real power behind them. You may get a sense of the day with the last image and the shape of that incoming wave. I would not wish to be among those rocks with such waves.
Something different tomorrow, I hope.
