2 LITTLE EGRETS, KINGFISHER & 5 CORMORANTS (1 with large Pike lure stuck to bill!) at Piccotts End Pools.
Here is some footage I digi-vid-scoped of the Juvenile 'Sinensis' CORMORANT with the large Pike lure attached to its bill at Piccotts End Pools. Fellow fishermen should act more responsibly with their tackle. How long before this poor bird dies of starvation?
