Cormorant problem solved?

      We watched fifteen Cormorants fishing in about one hundred yards of drain last week and there were still half a dozen sitting on the power lines drying themselves and watching the proceedings. These are desperate days for the fish stocks in our rivers, drains and lakes but whilst out on patrol we feel we may have found the answer to the problem.
      Now, some people would say that a .50 calibre Browning is over-gunning things just a little bit but it works for us.
      Right I'm off down the orchard for target practice, I hope nobody hears me.
