I am guessing this is a cormorant as it is quite big. It was with another bird similar but its head was speckled white. Would this be its mate. Taken in Whitby on the beach. Lumix FZ48

progressed from holiday snaps to being serious about it just 3 years ago.I keep a compact camera in my handbag at all times .It is more convenient, an SLR is to heavy and complicated for me. I just like to point and shoot. I do enhance my images slightly with pseudo HDR on a single image. Now I have a hobby and a passion.
