There’s a Cormorant on the Rock!

10 May

There’s a Cormorant on the rock!

Little Pied Cormorants are not an uncommon sight on the river, yet they seldom choose to rest on rocks, preferring instead to alight on man-made structures such as wooden poles, and the top of the shark-proof netting. So I think myself lucky to get a shot of one while it rested on a rock, just outside the swimming baths in Sydney’s Georges River.

Enjoy!

Little Pied Cormorants regularly visit the local swimming baths in the river. But this little fellow has chosen a quite unusual place to rest. 🙂

Enjoy!

Come on in, the Water’s Fine….

28 Aug

Come on in, the water’s fine…

That’s what this cormorant seems to be saying!

Moments before, it had been sunning itself on the rusty pontoon ladder.

All alone, it took the plunge!

The water's fine!

The water’s fine!

The sunshine is lovely, too!
