A Love Match

These two Cormorants, of the European race sinensis were indulging in a bit of courtship in full view of everybody. The sinesis race is now spreading Northwards in the UK and are more likely to breed on inland waters than the Great Cormorant we are familiar with.

The chat up:



The kiss (tongues?):



The wedding gift:



Distant shots I'm afraid in dull conditions.

Regards

David

Re: A Love Match

Thanks all for your thoughts. This went on for about an hour before they flew off in different directions - to carry on later, or fastest ever divorce?

nice one - as are the photos. And they are so darn sharp, I can't believe these are long range shots. Especially like the last one.
