Great Cormorant - Phalacrocorax carbo

One from back in the spring that I never got round to posting.

 

For most of the year the Cormorant gets dismissed as a black waterbird although there is more to them than that with a closer look.

 

When they get their summer plumes on they can look much more impressive.

 

Equally at home on fresh or salt water this one was at Killingworth Lake watching the model boats go by.
