Description:

This bird seems to cotton on to people feeding the fish is a good time to go fishing. It swims on the surface from it's perch some 100m away directly to where people are in the habit of feeding fish and ducks. On arrival, it goes into stealth mode, very quietly slipping under water and fishing. Catch rate was at least 3 similar size fish in less than 10 minutes. It then swims on surface back to it's perch.
