Li River: 19th May 2014.

This video rather prompts the question ‘Isn’t it cruel to the birds?’ I’d say that no-one with any sense would mistreat the animal on which his living depends.

(I say again, no-one with any sense !!)

Cormorants, I discovered, live for up to 15 years in the wild … but nearly 30 in captivity. Which raises the question: If you were a cormorant, would you rather spend 30 years in captivity, or 15 just doing what cormorants do?
