A “Gulp” of Cormorants and some friendly Swans

Recently l have been trying to photograph a ‘gulp’ (who knew?) of Cormorants who gather on or adjacent to the landing in the local lake. Unfortunately they hear or see me coming and take flight so this afternoon l tried out a new, but cheap, telephoto lens. Only one Cormorant and a rather sad and cold looking Heron were there but before l could adjust the focus they too took flight. Happily the lake Swan family took pity and did a rather elegant paddle by which cheered me up immenseley. 😊
