Good shot of these Ed. I know most anglers will hate them for eating (as they do) far too many fish.TongueTongueTongue

Very good detail in these cormorants Ed.
I've never managed to get a good image of these birds yet-
always too far away.
The open wings are wonderful.

Whist trying to capture all black birds I find it extremely difficult to get the exposure spot on, however you seem to have got it spot on mate

Good detail in this one Ed, I love the varying colours in their plumage and when the sun is on them they are so vibrant for such a dark coloured bird. Lou
