Reed Cormorant. Perched on the beam overlooking the pond. Another one looking for an easy meal.
Other than cover the pool/pond with a net there is little one can do to protect the fish should this feller come for a visit. Fortunately most of the koi are a bit too big for him now! But he has been in the pond a couple of times and once took a fair number of babies.
Over at Nancy’s spot, it’s all about the birds!
