The Day of The Cormorants

A Flock of Little Black Cormorants

The last few weeks I’ve noticed a big increase in the number of Little Black Cormorants in and around our local swimming baths. Just today I overheard someone commenting on the large number that had perched along the shark-proof net, doubtless to enjoy the warm sunshine on a cold winter’s day.

They certainly make their presence felt when they land on the water, and commence their quite extraordinary dives. They swim much lower in the water than the ducks, and certainly in our part of the river, their numbers are far, far greater.

    Oh I love watching birds, and near water they are so funny sometimes. I often go for walks near the lakes here and take lots of photos. Good for writing ideas too. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos. 🙂

    Yes, Jane, I love to walk near the water, and as you say it’s a great environment for thinking about stories… We have quite a variety of interesting water-birds near where I live, including Pelicans and Egrets. Thanks for your comment 🙂
