Cormorants & other Birds by Adam Swaine
Via Flickr:
Cormorants are large, black waterbirds. They feed on fish, which they catch with their long, hook-tipped bills while swimming underwater. Cormorants nest on low cliffs around the coasts, or in colonies in trees on lakes and flooded gravel pits. Cormorants can often be spotted perched on a rock or bank with their wings held out. In this stance, they are able to dry their feathers off which are not waterproof..

The UK holds internationally important wintering numbers..

Nunhead Cemetery Walk by Adam Swaine
Via Flickr:
Nunhead Cemetery is the second largest of London’s Magnificent Seven cemeteries, and probably the wildest. Almost 270,000 people are buried here, dating back as far as 1840 OK, the cemetery cost a lot more to build, but in 1975 it was bought for £1. The London Cemetery Company, which had originally owned it, went bankrupt and passed the cemetery into to the ownership of the United Cemetery Company (UCC) in 1960. The UCC couldn’t run the cemetery profitably, so closed it in 1969, locked the gates, and left it to wrack and ruin. In 1975, Southwark Council bought the site for £1, although very little was done with it until the late 1990s when it was awarded Lottery funding, allowing the Friends of Nunhead Cemetery to renovate and restore it. Much of the cemetery is still wild as a result of being left untended for years, with many paths and gravestones inaccessible
