Picking up the Shag skull and a chance encounter

A few years ago I found a sea bird skull on a secluded beach, I think the skull is from a Shag and I left the skull as it still had feathers on it so I placed it under a rock so it could decompose more. I had to climb down a rocky hill using a narrow path down to a very rocky beach with no sand, I use this same area to swim with my Easybreath mask on as there is some great sea life here which I am yet to fully film due to setbacks. I am hoping to go back for a few days in July to see if I can get one more chance this summer to film underwater if the weather is warm enough.
As I already have a Cormorant skull which is a similar bird that often get confused when Identifying them. The Cormorant is slightly larger that the Shag but the beaks and skull designs are pretty much the same.

 I visited the spot again before we left North Wales as I got the opportunity to try and film underwater but I could not fully submerge myself due to some late summer visitors to the Irish sea.

Thanks for reading my blog
Stay wild, be happy and be safe
