These are amazing. Beautifully captured
I'd never thought they'd catch eels.
Cormorants are not welcomed on our inland waters and I can see why.
Wretched vacuum cleaners!  :p

This was one of two that it caught within 15 mins, and struggled with both, this was caught in a small harbour. Thanks for the nice comments Avondale87.

I thought I had posted these, but I guess not. Snowy Egret looking for a meal. Wide shot and a tighter portrait...taken about 20 seconds apart. Good example of 300mm vs 600mm.

Excellent couple of shots.
