Default River Loire - Orleans

The town stretch - has a small cormorant problem. I was having a wander to try to find somewhere to fish 2 or 3 weeks ago. The main flow was too strong so I walked over the bridge to the calmer section downstream of a wier and found this. Didn't bother fishing - can't imagine there was much left.

Blimey, I haven't seen numbers like those since I last visited Gunthorpe on the Trent where the damn things sit on the weir booms drying their wings out with the surrounding trees black with 'em

When I used to rent a cottage on a farm estate that bordered the River Vienne I regularly saw the Fisheries Officers go down to the river shooting cormorants. And as far as I know they are effectively on the 'General Licence' as we know it, in that they can be shot at any time of year.

It looked a nightmare. I'm an RSPB member (at the moment) but this sort of thing cannot possibly go on. I guess man has created the problem with over fishing etc.(I don't remember seeing any cormorants in the 60s) but I cannot contemplate this happening here.
