Shags on a rock

This morning I went out for a sail expecting a decent breeze; instead it was almost dead flat so what else to do but take photos. These shags (cormorants) are perched, not on a rock, but on one of a series of concrete blocks a few hundred metres offshore from Glenelg.

These concrete caissons were built in 1914 as part of a breakwater for Glenelg. In 1915 the project was abandoned after a severe storm. These "Glenelg Blocks" are often frequented by local fishermen and divers.
