Cormorants - are eagles the answer?

An interesting piece from a bird blog regarding cormorants - could white tailed sea eagles help keep their numbers down..? Read it here on Raptor Politics.

Moves to re-introduce the eagles - dubbed the flying barn door because of their 8ft wingspan - to Norfolk ended in controversy.

But apparently, there's nothing they like more than munching on a cormorant. Talking of which, local papers in Cumbria have been reporting a plague of cormorants of late.

But the Cormorant Watch website shows the Thames Valley is their current stronghold, with more than 400 sightings logged. Click here to report your sightings.
