Fishing on the River – A Cormorants Tale

Down by the Clarence River in Grafton, a Great Cormorant spent a bit of time with a fish. Here is the Cormorants Tale of fishing in the afternoon.

One afternoon, a head popped out of the water. Yes!!! I have a fish.

It is a rather big fish, I hope I can eat it.

I wish it would stop wriggling about.

Phew, managed to get it back again.

Ahhh…………this is the way to get a fish down, head first here we go.

Perhaps a bit of a dunking will help the fish slide down my neck.

Bloody hell Janice, it’s my fish, now go away. I’m not sharing!

Peace at last. Now to get it in the right position.

Bugger the fish is sideways again.

Ah well, perhaps it will go down after all.

With all of that, the Great Cormorant decided to fly further upstream to enjoy his snack. Did the fish get eaten? I suspect so.

  1. I could not stop laughing from this series of photos- your comments were quite entertaining 🙂 How great to capture these Brian!! Right place at right time. I love watching Cormorants- the way they pop up like a periscope and then submerge only to reappear much farther away
