CommentThe breeding season was in full swing and so it was a regular sight seeing birds returning to the roost with a meal in their bills. It was common to see birds with up to three fingerlings but this one had six! Clearly the catch of the day. What puzzles me is how it managed to sort the fish from smallest to largest to ensure an even bill pressure on each of them. If they were caught in that sequence there was little margin of error when the last one was captured,.
