Artist's Description

Collage on heavyweight watercolour paper. 28cm x 38cm
Based on a photograph [with permission] by Richard George.
In Britain the Cormorant a protected species since the 1970`s is known as a bird of our estuaries and coasts nesting on rocky ledges.
They are regarded by some as black, sinister and greedy. Since protection their numbers have greatly increased and they have found manmade and urban waterways more productive for fish than their normal wintering grounds.
Supreme fishers they have caused a stir among anglers and fisheries who blame them for falling fish stocks and damage.
The Cormorant has become known by anglers as the Black Death or Black Plague.
