The Day of the Cormorants

Little Black Cormorants

This morning, Ron, Chicki and I visited our local park. The sun, which had been shining brightly early on, was by now disappearing behind rather threatening-looking clouds. The heavy rain, though, did not eventuate.

On my way down the hill to the baths, I spotted an unusual sight. Dozens of Little Black Cormorants had perched on the wire atop the net. I counted twenty-four in a row, but that was just the start…

Quite often I see these birds in small numbers, but today’s display was exceptional. That’s why I’ve dubbed it ‘The Day of The Cormorants.’

    I’ve just checked and found the collective term for a group of cormorants is a Gulp, it seems quite appropriate doesn’t it Margaret.
