As I reached the bend in the canal that goes from Regents Park to Camden Lock I looked across to the moorings there (if you know the area, it's behind the red floating Chinese restaurant, which is why the water is reflecting red) and noticed a big black bird there - I'm pretty sure this is the cormorant I saw last year, or another cormorant anyway. I took quite a few pictures but since I couldn't get very close I've made a collage of the best - extreme zoom and the vibration reduction setting was really my friend for most of these.
Went on from there to do a bit of shopping in Camden High Street, nothing very exciting, then got the bus home. Because of various detours this came out as about a 4 mile walk, not wonderful but better than nothing.
Tomorrow I'm headed to Hamstead to pick up a comb binding machine someone's giving away on Freecycle, I'll try to walk some of that too.
