I dropped in near twilight today at above; was surprised to see 15 cormorants on the lake and islands. And then amazingly at least 8 flew up to roost in a large oak tree, something I`ve never seen before, herons in trees yes, cormorants ?

Just as I was leaving a kingfisher alighted in the reeds in front of the hide, before diving in and taking a small fish. Wonderful 🙂

  1. 38 cormorants there on Sunday morning and up to 20 perch up in the oak on the island. The female Kingie is a regular – have seen her in every 15 minutes or so and currently is a guaranteed sighting. Beauty as well she tends to favour the natural perches. No sight of the current 10 day and counting mega? Check out the Monts blog for sightings and a few pics

  2. Yes they do nest in trees! I once saw a big cormorant tree-nesting colony in Holland, at the famous Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve.
