Trédaniel plan d'eau, afternoon

A cormorant is standing on the island formed by debris collected at the overflow to the pool. It lifts off reluctantly, wheels round wide, and heads off over the treetops.

I'v only ever thought of cormorants as sea birds; never considered them land-based. Learn something new every day.

I think in Europe they've changed their habits in perhaps the last 20 years or so; they used to be seashore mainly but now come quite some distance inland to fish, mostly in lakes. Occasionally one would turn up by my neighbour's large freshwater pool on the offchance!
