Forty years ago on 17 August 1976, when I was a 12 year old boy, I saw Cormorants while on holiday in Tenby and made the following entry in my nature notebooks.
On Westray Cormorants are unusual and the smaller, neater Shag is the more common. I just have to wait at the Scaun a while and I can see them fly low over the water.
In Devon there are Cormorants inland in lakes. This one was diving for fish in my local country park.
Forty years later they’re still a wonderful sight.
