Great Cormorant with Catfish

Great Cormorant with a large catfish, Bharatpur Bird sanctuary (Keoladeo National Park) Rajasthan, India.

We watched the cormorant struggle with this catfish for a good 10 minutes whilst being hassled by some opportunistic scavengers. Eventually the wriggling fish was under control and it was down the hatch in one.

About the Great Cormorant:

“A large and conspicuous waterbird, the cormorant has an almost primitive appearance with its long neck making it appear reptilian. It is often seen standing with its wings held out to dry. Regarded by some as black, sinister and greedy, cormorants are supreme fishers which can bring them into conflict with anglers and they have been persecuted in the past. The UK holds internationally important wintering numbers.”
