'One gulp and it was gone...'

Amateur photographer Stewart Canham captured a cormorant eating a foot-long pike at a lake near his home in Dorset, the Daily Mail reports.

"The cormorant was desperately trying to get the pike into its mouth but it was struggling," he told the paper.

"Then the bird suddenly stretched out its neck and twisted it before swallowing the pike down in one."
