Bird’s Eye

We really got lucky during our week in Mallorca back in October and spotted a charismatic cormorant carrying out his habitual seaside behaviours before our very eyes. We watched, transfixed, for a good fifteen minutes both amused and endeared by his wing-drying exploits!

Cordial Cormorant

Two beady blue eyes poking up from the sea wall

Boomerang wings flicking fickle drops of seawater from your feathered front

You curious white-speckled bellied bird

blissfully unaffected by our human habit of staring and snapping scenery!

Stood there stoically with your two autumn-leaf flippers

and your fabulously fluffy head

Your beaky bravado might just have made our day!
