A quick glide through some stories of sea birds! This is an area where science is sometimes stranger than stories. It turns out there is a lot to talk about here, and I hope listeners will forgive some mild anthropomorphising. I don't actually think cormorants care whether or not they are the goths of the ocean.
The book I cite repeatedly in this episode is The Fabled Coast, by Jennifer Westwood and Sophia Kingshill, and it is a great compendium of lore.
