Agreed - the subspecies desmarestii, which shows whiter underparts and pale edgings to the coverts as on this bird.

Seem to recall the rocks/breakwaters on the way in to Puerto Pollensa are a weel-known sight for desmarestii.

We are currently in Mallorca and have seen plenty of Shags but no Comorants as yet, every other year they are normally about the same amount
