Forehead to shallow

Hi

I'm not confident enough to make an ID but that bird looks like a cormorant to me. Its forehead isn't steep enough for a shag and it doesn't seem to have that funny crest of a shag.

Crest

Think I agree with Bill. Don't male AND female shags have crests when breeding so shouldn't it have one now?

I ask because I'm uncertain...
