Looks like we can expect a week of autumn weather in this end of the season. Although the day was gray and dark, at least it has not rained and at Fornells, some people has yet dared to enjoy windsurfing.
Modern sculpture or remains of a shipwreck? It does not seem to be a concern for this cormorant
The great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo), is a widespread member of the cormorant family of seabirds. It feeds on the sea, in estuaries, and on freshwater lakes and rivers. Northern birds migrate south and winter along any coast that is well-supplied with fish.
The great cormorant can dive to considerable depths, but often feeds in shallow water. It frequently brings prey to the surface. Many fishermen see in the great cormorant a competitor for fish. Because of this it was nearly hunted to extinction in the past. Thanks to conservation efforts its numbers increased.
