Goosander chase
Goosander chase
The Caul on the Nith, right in the centre of Dumfries, is a great place to watch wildlife. At this time of year there are usually a dozen or so goosanders fishing in the turbulent water at the foot of the weir. Whenever one surfaces with a fish, there is a chase and general melee as the other birds try to rob him of his prize, on this occasion an eel.
