Hereford Journal - Wednesday 25 June 1794

Thursday a circumstance of a very uncommon nature occurred in the neighbourhood of Cobham: a large flight of Cormorants were seen hovering about the park, which carried away great quantities of poultry; they had the audacity to attack a deer, and made great destruction among the fruit. Several of these rapacious animals were shot, and the rest dispersed; some of the wounded have since been seen about Chatham and Brompton.
