    I don't think that you would have encountered its song, Ian - it's a female!

    I thought that maybe it was the Continetal 'sinensis' form, rather than the Atlantic 'carbo'.

    Another super image. Although a very shallow DOF.

    I am going to try your PP technique on my next bird pic.

    I've seen cormorants hanging around the Grand Union Canal here in West Herts - many miles from the sea.

    Just a bog standard cormorant I think. They come inland to nest in big trees...………………..A Shag has a rounder head, and is not easy to positively ID....

    What sort of cormorant is this? I saw it today at The Grove Hotel in Watford.
    (Sorry that it's a huge crop!)

    Nope - changed my mind - the head lacks the brown feathery flourish below and to the back of the eyes.

    I'd say it's around the size of a smallish starling, if that makes sense?

    Now thinking Dunnock - which would be a bit disappointing
