Little Marjakari reef is one of the outest and most isolated in Luvia archipelago by the Bothnian coast. For tens of years, there has been the biggest cormorant (Phalacrocorax Carbo) colony of Finland (1900 nests). The birds have been very harassed as people think they will destroy the vegetation of the reefs and eat all the fish from the sea. As they were disturbed in the beginning of the nesting season this spring, the colony moved to nearby reefs. Even for me, it was a surprise to see how fast the vegetation has renewed.
