Woody bay cormorant
This cormorant on the rocks of Woody bay is adopting the Crucifixion pose, it did this for a long time after it had just done a few dives for food. Some believe this is to dry it's wings where as others believe the stretched out wings pose aids digestion and regulating body heat after a cold snack.
