Phalacrocorax carbo

Cormorant - Cormorants nest on coastal rocks and sometimes in trees on inland lakes. Large bird identified by the white cheek patches. Also has a white wing patch during the breeding season. Lives solely on fish which makes this bird unpopular with lakeland fishermen! Sometimes confused with the Shag at distance.
