Yesterday,(1/10/2010) while walking around Truganina Swamp,Altona,VIC, I
looked up to see large numbers of Little-black Cormorants flying over. They
where in V formation,comprising 3 to 4 V's,but they "flowed" about changing
formation and size and position as I watched.I presume this was the drafting
change-over.They where flying East to West. I estimated somewhere between
400 and 500 birds,probably around 450 at a guess.I've never seen this number
at one time before.Is this unusual or notable?
