Although this is a light-hearted look at bird behaviour, there is a serious note to this blog. Human behaviour has a huge impact on the world around us and the animals that live in it. The items incorporated in these shag nests are a sobering reminder of the rubbish that finds its way into our seas and onto our beaches. It is estimated that one million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals die each year from swallowing, or getting entangled in, plastic. Do your bit to help save these animals by making sure you recycle and dispose of your rubbish responsibly.
