Venus Pool - But is it sport?




I used to be a mad keen match angler in the bygone age of my youth so I'm not about to enter the 'angling' argument fray. Fishing is not allowed at VP of course, rod and line that is.....

I counted 39 Cormorants the other day and a similar number have been hanging about recently with one aim in mind - fishin! The low water has concentrated the fish quite a bit too so put a line of a dozen or so of them together, with others swapping places from the rear, the effect is that of a winged trawler, hoovering up the small to medium size fish population!

Here they come - just part of the 'gulp' *.....








And there they go.....





Squabbling fighting, it's every Cormorant for himself!







The one that got away?



* todays interesting fact - it's a gulp of Cormorants.....
