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

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.
