A little pied

Saw a cormorant fly in and do a couple of circuits of the dam to check if there was any reason not to fly in and then satisfied a quick dive down to have a check for yabbies. Walked down to see if I could get a photo before it got spooked and found it sitting on a branch. Manage to get a few shots but most had vegetation in the way however it moved to another branch and I did manage to get a couple of photos before it took off.

It is a Little Pied Cormorant Phalacrcorax melanoleucos that has a range throughout Australasia and Indonesia and most of the ones I see in our area are around the lake shore or fishing in the lake where they are often in very large numbers.
