Cormorant on No Fishing Sign

Today started perfectly. Beautiful early morning sunshine, next to no wind, and a cormorant who likes nothing more than to pose for the camera.

He’s spotted me, and here he comes 😉



This is where he was heading…

Gull - No Fishing

The gull knew that discretion is the better part of valour and beat a retreat.




And sorted…

Cormorant on No Fishing Sign

    Sami, thanks! I’ve been enjoying watching this cormorant and finally am getting some decent light.

    Darko, it’s a near perfect combination. Now if they would only hop up there to eat the catch!
