RONALD the SHAG
There seems to be a new arrival for Ronald the shag, who nests right next to the main jetty on Staple Island, one of the Farne Islands off the Northumberland coast of England, UK. He was christened Ronald by school children visiting the island. Shag chicks hatch without down and so they rely totally on their parents for warmth, often for a period of two months before they can fly.
