[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A second cormorant shot!

Up to the 80's the cormorant was more or less regularly seen in Luxembourg. Since the mid 80's the cormorant stays regularly during the winter monthes in Remerschen.

During the last years there has been quite a dispute around the cormorant between the sports fishery association and nature and birdlife protection.

For all those that need, like me, more general info: wiki

Cormaorant in Luxembourg:
Regulus (German) magazine of the LNVL (Nature and Birdlife Protection League).

oh wow, what an awesome pose! this is even better than the one from yesterday - did he see you and turn on purpose?
the wings and feathers are really impressive, and there is still the nice shadowy reflection on the water.
excellent job & best wishes, thor.

that´s cool: Zäitschrëft vun der Lëtzebuerger Natur- a Vulleschutzliga - interesting magazine,
good that it is in german too.
