Why did the cormorant cross the road in Sidmouth?

Cormorant spotted crossing Woolbrook Road by Sidmouth bird-lover Leslie

WE have all heard about the proverbial chicken that crossed the road, but in Sidmouth, it was more the case of a cormorant being spotted crossing Woolbrook Road.

Bird-lover Leslie Harris, of Manstone Avenue, spotted this cormorant recently and caught it on camera.

He said: “It was sitting on a gate. It couldn’t fly. Then it jumped down and crossed the road.”

He understands the bird, which may have been injured, was taken into care by an animal charity.
