|We saw this Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo) on the way home from one of our walks, more from the beginning of my trip in England. |
I'm not quite sure how I spotted it as it was getting quite dark and it wasn't even moving. It just sat on the edge of this boat, keeping still.
These guys are found around the UK coastline on rocky shores, coastal lagoons and estruaries, though is frequently being seen at inland reservoirs, lakes and gravel pits.
Regarded as black, sinister and greedy, cormorants are supreme fishers which can bring them into conflict with anglers and have been persecuted in the past.
The UK holds internationally important wintering numbers and is an amber list species.
