I've Not Seen Many Cormorants Today

Posted Sunday 3rd May 2009 at 09:51 by Francis Duggan
I've not seen many cormorants today
Just four or five on rocks close to the shore
Whilst on other days I've seen large flocks of them
Twenty to thirty and sometimes even more.

Perhaps the sea too rough for them to fish
And to inland lake they've gone to spend the day
The wild waves crash against the foreshore wall
And sea rage violent out on Blackrock Bay.

Close to the shore like cork amidst the waves
The smallest member of grebe family
The little grebe at home amongst big waves
He holds no terror for the violent sea.

When sea is calm and sun shine in the sky
Large flocks and different types of birds I see
The black backed and silver gulls, the little grebes
And cormorants out fishing in the sea.

I've not seen many cormorants today
Just four or five on rocks close to the shore
Whilst on other days I've seen large flocks of them
Twenty to thirty and sometimes even more.
