A lot of people have this idea that you need to travel miles into the wilderness to be able to get good sightings of wildlife. The truth is that you don't even have to leave the city. Actually I think there's more wildlife in the cities because they can raid bins, get fed by humans and are so used to humans they don't give a bugger.
I watched a couple of Cormorants in the canal on Saturday. One was swimming about whilst the other was drying off its wings. Joggers would go past yet the birds weren't phased in the slightest. We also saw a number of Cormorants on the Kelvin where we often see them.
