Incredibly beautiful weather this afternoon but it brought out all the yapping dogs and their adulating owners which, together with the fishermen's outboards, thoroughly disturbed the birds. What few there were were noted in the hide notebook; still 47 Cormorants in the evening going (to roost?) in their tree by the tourist area.
