I saw this unfortunate Cormorant a few days ago at Swanpool. The RSPB site says they do not (apparently), deal with injured birds, which I could maybe understand if it was an act of nature but this is a man made problem. The RSPCA said they were aware of the situation and were monitoring it daily! What do they think is going to happen? certainly the fishing line/net is not going to just fall off. Maybe they are monitoring how long it takes it to starve to death. Myself and Peter from the Swanpool Cafe did try to approach it but it moved further away. I'm sure that one of the professional organisation, with their expertise could manage to rescue the poor thing. Hopefully, it has now been dealt with one way or another.

The Following were taken at 2 of my favourite places, Stithians Reservoir in
Cornwall and Yarner Woods in Devon. The first 4 are from Yarner were
we also had good views of Lesser-spotted Woodpecker.

This is a catch up from the last 2 weeks.
We saw around 60 Common Cranes in Somerset in with
the cows but they were at quite a distance.
The rest were taken around Cornwall.

I finally caught up with the very obliging juvenile Rose-coloured Starling at Lands End.
The last 2 pictures were all I could get of the Adult in Lizard Village 2 weeks ago.
The local Starlings don't seem very friendly!

We spent a lovely couple of hours at Bissoe Valley on Sunday.
This Golden-Ringed Dragonfly dropped into a pond and struggled desperately to get out
but its wings were covered in algae. John managed to scoop it out with the tripod and
after cleaning off what we could, we hung it out of site still flapping like mad.
When we checked later, it had gone so we will never know if it
managed to clean itself up and fly off or if it got eaten.
