I’d been wondering why there was a noticeable lack of bird life around the lake today. Late this afternoon when Mr. A came cruising past my back yard, the mystery was solved.
Unfortunately he wouldn’t come close enough for a decent photo, and headed off towards the other side. One lone cormorant flew down to the water quite close to where Mr A was lurking. After splashing around for a minute or so, he suddenly took off like a bat out of Hell, and who could blame him?
