CORMORANT
Cormorants are birds of the sea - but can also be found on freshwater, and I have even seen them on our local canal. However most frequently I see them when sea watching - diving for fish. They are strong flyers and fly close to the surface of the sea. Very often they are seen on the rocks with their wings outstretched, drying them in the sun!
 
GREAT NORTHERN DIVER
I don't often get an opportunity to take a picture of this diver as normally I only see them when sea watching off the North Wales coast, when they are usually too far away to get a decent shot. This juvenile appeared briefly on West Kirby Marine Lake - although the weather was poor - he came, briefly, close enough to the bank for me to get a couple of shots in!
