We surprised a cormorant, fishing in a spot right near where we were walking on the old rail bed through Hampton Marsh.
Instead of flying away, the cormorant paddled off. The dog decided to give chase.
The bird hit the spot where the tidal current rips fast under an old bridge.
The dog is a good swimmer but I thought that current might be too much for him and he’d be swept down the river through the marsh then out to sea.
“Radar, come back!”
