During my boat trip along the River Weaver at the weekend I saw more cormorants than any other species.
Every few minutes one or two would fly past us... and we were soon to see quite a few more.
As we reached Saltersford Locks the original route of the river branches off to the left...
...and there were lot's of them sat up in a tree.
I counted over twenty... these images were the best I could manage as we couldn't get the boat any closer.
I did get some good views of them through my binoculars though... lovely birds to watch.
