During the RSPB Beached Survey on Baleshare beach on 26th February I came across the remains of a ringed (1439937) Shag. This bird had been ringed by Bob Swann as a nestling on 7th July 2011 on the Isle of Canna - co-ordinates 57deg 3 min N 6deg 33min W. Baleshare beach is 57deg 32min N 7 deg 25min W. The bird was not freshly dead and found 234 days after it was ringed and 75 km from the ringing site in a NW direction.
