Cormorants are a regular sighting here on the coast of aberystwyth, often seen fishing in the estuary and sunning themselves with wings outstretched on the jetties. They don’t often come close to shore however making photographing them difficult.
Today I got lucky when this individual emerged on the harbour rocks just a few meters away. It eyed me curiously with it’s vivid green eyes before deciding to head back to the Safety of open water.
From it’s mottled brown plumage this looks like a juvenile bird.
