Cormorants at Portland Bill – Saturday Photo

Cormorants for Blog
A beautiful day at Portland Bill, the furthermost place on Portland. The sea like a millpond apart from the Portland Race which is always rough and dangerous. The three cormorants basked in the sunshine.

The following is taken from http://www.worldheritagecoast.net:

Portland Bill is the graveyard of many vessels that failed to reach Weymouth or Portland Roads. From the shore you can see the Portland Race, a meeting of the tides that causes a continuous disturbance.

Portland Bill Lighthouse guides vessels heading for Portland and Weymouth through these hazardous waters as well as acting as a waymark for ships navigating the English Channel.
