On a Rainy Day in Summer

It’s a….. ???? It’s a Cormorant not enjoying the rain…

I started to make a list of the birds that I have photographed and because it’s a rainy day in summer, (one in very few!), and both grandkids who live here have returned to school, I thought I’d take the time to add the list to the blog.

I’m not happy with how it looks. It looks a bit haphazard. I’ll keep playing around and try to improve it. At least the links seem to work. Please tell me if any redirect you places you didn’t expect.

I soon got tired of all that and took the camera out into the rain.

I don’t get many rainy days to look at birds. They didn’t seem to enjoy the rain even though they were water birds.

This pelican hunkered down as low as he could when the rain started.

I think I might be in danger of becoming a twitcher, as there are lots more birds I would like to add to my list.

Great Cormorants

These birds were lined up along the edge of rocks. Every now and then one would lean into the water and grab a fish.

This one suddenly got the urge to leap into the water, catch a fish and then fall back into line along the edge of the rocks.
