Shipwreck as a home of the Great Cormorants

Shipwreck in Aristelaht Bay, in Saaremaa, Estonia
Visible shipwrecks don't exist on Finnish waters - at least I have never heard about such. Well, of course there's lot's of them under the sea surface, but you need to know the exact place and dive, if you want to see one. But you don't have to go far from here to see a shipwreck, as at least one big abandoned ship is still in Ariste Laht in Saaremaa, Estonia. Let's hope it can stay there, because nowadays it's inhabited by a large colony of Great Cormorants (Phalacrocorax carbo). The photo is taken through spotting scope with cell phone camera.

  1. This shipwreck does not exist anymore, Estonians removed it and recycled the steel. The cormorants have now moved to some small islands.
