Great Cormorant Little Roberts
Red-billed Tropic Bird Seal Island.
What a good bird.
this bird seems to be spending more time roosting on the water than other years, perhaps its getting a bit weary.
the newer tail feather a bit shorter and stiffer than the older one.
I have quite a pile of pictures of this bird yet I am still keen to get a few more.
