On a walk round the pond last September I bumped into a fisherman and we got chatting about the different types of fish at the pond. As part of this he showed me a good-sized bream that he’d caught earlier. It had a cut on it’s head which was perhaps due to a close shave with a hungry cormorant.
The fisherman put some antiseptic gel on to the wound (see below) and then released the fish back into the pond.
