Cormorant at The Quays
Cormorant at The Quays
A cormorant, perched on a buoy in Salford Quays' Central Bay, is silhouetted against the reflection of the late afternoon sun.

Cormorants are large and conspicuous waterbirds. They are found around the UK coastline on rocky shores, coastal lagoons and estuaries; they are increasingly being seen inland at reservoirs, lakes and gravel pits.
