I went out early this am to see what birds were about. Plenty of Kingfishers, herons, a Harrier and a couple of eagles. It was getting hot and too bright but this was a first for me.

A couple of Cormorants were fishing at about 60 mtrs and a Little Egret was on the bank behind them. This did not happen once but repeatedly. The Egret was able to take the fish three times, once the Cormorant ate it before the Egret could get it and once the Cormorant dropped it and the both tried to get it.

Just thought it was interesting behaviour to share and see if anyone else has had similar occurrence.

These are with the D300s, 500vr w/tc1.4 from a tripod and W200. Out of camera since they are really not worth much

I packed it in shortly after, just too hot and bright.
Cheers,
Tom
