Photographer's Note

This is the much photographed Brograve windmill in Norfolk.
It's situated near the National Trust managed Horsey windpump which is located right next to a road and easily accessible, and therefore quite busy. This one, however, is in the middle of farmland and about a 90 minute walk there and back from the nearest road! Worth the walk, though.
You might notice a bird on top of the remainder of the sail, it's probably a cormorant, they use it as a look out and to dry their wings in the sun.

The windmill was built in 1771 as a drainage mill. It originally had a boat shaped cap with a petticoat and an 8 bladed fantail with a tailpole. Four patent sails powered the pumping mechanism. 235 years later it stands lop-sided and derelict, and cormorants and photographers are it's regular visitors.

Please give me an honest critique, stating what you like or don't like about the photo.
