I went out in my boat this past weekend to view the cormorant rookery at the end of the east jetty. There were a lot more birds and nests there than I have seen in previous years. And I noticed that they were building nests much closer to the waterline. I fear that these nests will get washed away in a heavy southerly wind. We'll see.
Here are some pictures of the cormorant rookery I grabbed on saturday. Click on any picture to enlarge.-
