Does anyone know what bird the black one is? It was all alone among the seagulls, sitting at the marina entrance quite undisturbed. It might perhaps be a cormorant of some type?. As you can tell I was a long way off and it's not a very good picture.

Yes it's a cormorant Tom.

I see a couple of the seagulls have been to O4TR!

On the pic above I am told it is a cormorant, either a very brave or very stupid one.

On the subject of bird lfe, this is taking free range a bit too far perhaps? On the road towards Algarve Shopping yesterday afternoon. A dog was having fits about this but the birds ignored it.

The cowardy cats weren't up for for a fight yesterday when two very large gulls muscled in on their territory and ate their food.



The stripey one in fact walked off completely.

The orange one seems to spend all its time asleep. A pretty good life I should think. Taken yesterday.

A couple of friends who dropped in for lunch
The first one liked cheese rolls but the second on preferred grapes.
On a side note, we've got 2 Hoopoe's regularly visiting our patio at the moment but they don't like the camera. Will keep trying though.




I hate how peopleï compare Frank Zappa to God. I mean, he's cool and great and nice and everything, but he's no Zappa.
