Thread: Where are the cormorants?

  1. #1

    Where are the cormorants?

    Like others on here, I control cormorants on a local fishery and in 2011 & 2012 I was pestering NE mid August for the licence then by September we were inundated with the pests. To date this year not 1 cormorant has shown. I can only put it down to the mild weather. Is anyone else experiencing the same this year?

    unless you can prove it beyond all reasonable doubt, it wasn't me. If you can prove it then you must be mistaken

    there are big rafts of cormorants working on sprats around the isles , they arrived last week but i think they are our home grown stock . so they must be fishing at sea

    Comorants can cover a lot of ground in little time they are strong fliers once they have got there wings dry ,and they fly in a direct line, if you are in Yorkshire you carnt get 100 miles from the sea, still one thing no one mentiond they are better eating than you might think ,at one time there was a market for them in Shetland

    Sorry my mistake I reckon I maybe about 70 miles or so from sea , wow I never knew that they were good eating still I suppose there's a lot of things we don't eat anymore that we used to
