Great Cormorant in Spain

We've just received our second report of one of our colour-ringed Great Cormorants in Spain. Unlike the first report (where the bird was shot) this is a field sighting! Black FS was ringed in June this year in the tiny colony on Lihou, Guernsey. It was seen and photographed at A Ramallosa Beach, Baiona, Pontevedra by Antonio Martinez Pernas. If this bird survives its immaturity it will be fascinating to see if it returns to its natal colony to breed in a few years' time.
