It's that cormorant again

The juvenile cormorant that I spotted early in December seems to have taken up residence on the stretch of the River Aire between Hirst Weir and the aqueduct. One day when I passed, it was perched on a tree stump grounded on the weir. Perhaps fish are easier to catch as they tumble over the weir? From a distance I thought it was the heron, which often frequents this spot, but as I got closer I could see it wasn't. Handsome birds, aren't they?


  1. Handsome birds, aren't they? Well done.

  2. They are handsome. I like the way you have captured the moving water.

  3. hi. I also spotted the cormorant today 13th January morning at Baildon bridge
