Shields coastline

Been down a few times this week to view the seabird colony which is right on my door step. It’s just a fantastic sight and sound.

The Cormorants are breeding in 3 different places this year, most are on the Marsden rock, a few on the small stack just south of the rock and these birds are part of the colony on Jack rock which is at lizard point.

Razorbill numbers look to be increasing along this stretch of our coastline with birds on ledges I haven’t seen them on before. This ledge has 2 breeding birds on it which is half way down Jack rock.

Both the shots show the same ledge only a few days apart, canny difference with the chick sizes.
