Walking the dogs this afternoon when I noticed large numbers of relatively large birds perched along some power lines. My interest was piqued by the size of them and, it wasn't until one or two did the characteristic wing flap and stretch that they do, that I suddenly started to realise what they were. This was confirmed by a couple more that came down the river Adur that we were walking along and then diverted across to join them. Anyone else seen cormorants in these numbers and anyone know why? I've never seen this density before, yes you see maybe half a dozen along the tidal stretches sat on moorings and similar, but also I've never seen them on power lines. Apologies for the quality, it was on the Blackberry and at distance, I counted 41 birds... Are they back on the General licence yet, and if so what cart size would you recommend?
