Photographer's Note

In the 19th century the Great Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo) was extinct in Sweden. However in the 1940s, the species was re-established in the Kalmar Strait in the southern part of Baltic Sea. In the 1980s the species started to slowly increase. And today the species is widespread in Sweden There are around 40,000 nesting pairs in Sweden. In the archipelago of Uppland the species is very common and you see it everywhere but you also find the species the in lakes and rivers in the inland. This photo is taken south of Uppsala along the Fyris River.
