ive picked this as my favourite because of the effort it took to catch it , and discomfort of being bitten by mosquitos whilst hiding to avoid him spotting me :)

papagena, luck is relative. i hate this rascal of a bird. too often have i seen him dive into one of my fishponds and come out in an unpredictable part further on, and take off with a several hundred dollar worth koi :-(((

You are right with this point of view for sure !! We had the same problem with the cormorants fishing in our lake, on the way to their winter place.

I have sent a picture on FT:

Moreover I have found a little movie of 2009:
