025-Cormorant

Scientific name: Phalacrocorax carbo

Bird family: Cormorants and shags

A large and conspicuous waterbird, the cormorant has an almost primitive appearance with its long neck making it appear reptilian. It is often seen standing with its wings held out to dry.

The UK holds internationally important wintering numbers.
