Cormorant?

Today I was by artificial lake of Agras by Edeessa , North Greece. I saw this Cormorant.

Last days I have seen by BF another thread with the same bird.
Is this a subspecies of Phalacrocorax carbo or another Phalacrocorax?

it's phalacrocorax carbo sinensis (the ssp that occurs over most of eurasia). normally in breeding time they get this white head.
