What am I?
Cormorants are a large, black aquatic bird, often seen diving for fish or drying its wings on the land and perched on structures. The UK has two different races, one of which-the smaller continental race– is responsible for the quite recent colonisation of inland water bodies where they nest in trees around lakes and reservoirs. They are mostly silent but make various guttural noises at their breeding colonies. Photo Credit: John Parish.
