I found another photo of a panned cormorant that I like as much, or more, than the one from a couple days ago. If the light level remains the same, you can fine tune the shutter speed with each attempt until you get just the right look. That is what I did here, changing the shutter speed until 1/45th second gave me the look I wanted. Everything is nicely blurred but the cormorant is relatively sharp. The bird is centered in the photo because I was trying to keep the active point of focus on it's eye. If the subject being centered bothers you, you can crop the photo later off-setting the subject.
