  30. I recognized the bird directly. In recent years it has invaded our coast. They destroy the rocks with their faeces and takes great catches.

    I have not had them as close as you, also, I had only 300 mm of the camera. In my other blog from the 19/9, I have a picture of a number of cormorant.
    Think about your pictures, the bird is disliked, but gets really good at picture / brita
