Spotting the difference between a cormorant and a shag is not easy!

You often spot a shag on a rock. Let's hope the same can't be said for the cormorant!

We should start with a trip around the Scares...there are a lot of shags on that particular set of rocks...infact it is a gannet colony...worth a look and even a fish...you never know what we might hook into.

Sounds good to me, got to check fuel useage too !
Have ordered a Garmin F/Finder with speed sensor and temp....just got to wait for the posties now.
Sue says nothing like a nice shag on a rock, rather than a Cormorant !!

Scares are 8 miles out of NEB. We should all make that and back on a full tank...then we can see what remains and see if either of the other two are on. I am sure even your gas guzzler will make it. As long as the sea is smooth and the forecast good I don't see any problems. Mind the Irish sea can alter quickly I was told as the whole Atlantic tries to flow round it one way then the other!
