The Shag (Phalacrocorax aristotelis) is a large waterbird, similar in appearance but smaller than Cormorants.
They can be distinguished from their larger cousins by their dark green shiny plumage, crest and narrower bill with a yellow gape.

Twitter Web App : Thanks to everyone who played along this week! Lots of good guesses but I can now reveal that our mystery species was... the Northern Bottlenose whale! #whoami #whoamichallenge #marinelife #thread 1/
