I was going for a last lap at the Parklands today, struggling a bit on the bike as it was very windy and there was a strong headwind.

I thought I wasn’t going to post anything for sky watch this week until I saw these words written in the sky.

It didn’t make a lot of sense to me… that is until I photographed it upside down..

I was cycling at the Parklands again after the rain and I saw the two immature cormorants of the great cormorant family on the deck at the mini lake. I crept up to them for some close ups since I didn’t manage to do so previously. They were displaying their wings like they were exercising or something.

Here are a few shots.

The young cormorant on the left glances at his sibling in a rather  bemused way.

I’m sensing some sibling rivalry here.

Who do you think has the best looking wings? The cormorant on the left or the right.

I took some pics of a great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo) perching on a branch at the parklands a couple of days ago.  Here are a couple of shots.

Apparently it’s not the only one living there, as I found out this afternoon after the rain.  There is another cormorant , its mate and a pair of young cormorants as well.

Seen here is an adult cormorant and its young about to plunge in the water.DSC_0503_528

The family of four cormorant now safely in the water away from me.
