OK, another shot from my trip "up West" t'other day. Cormorants from a distance appear to be just a medium sized black bird, maybe with a slight purple tint in the right light. But a close look at their plumage reveals this wonderful dark border around each of their feathers which looks almost hand-painted. They also remind me of childhood holidays in the Isles of Scilly (and their should be some photos of a recent trip there on the other blog soon too). For anything else you really need to know about Cormorants, try this. Or, for those stuck in a more factually based reality, this. Canon EOS 5D
