Fishing with birds!

In the Guangxi province of China, fisherman use trained cormorants to help them catch fish from the Li river. A noose tied around the birds' necks to stop them swallowing any fish they may catch. Extraordinary clip from the BBC's Wild China series.

The super yacht that comes with its own VOLCANO: Multi-million pound boat which is a paradise island

Mail on Line   

This is the next super-yacht set to hit the world's oceans - which comes complete with its own functioning volcano and floating tropical islands.
The vessel - dubbed the 'Tropical island Paradise' - has been designed by British boat builders Yacht Island Design, from Derby, Derbys - some 90 miles from the sea.
The extravagant 295ft ship boasts a towering volcano with a cascading waterfall which feeds the swimming pool.

     Luxury: This yacht will soon be cruising the oceans with its very own floating tropical islands

 And playboys will feel right at home with the ships helicopter landing pad and huge bar set behind a series of beach cabanas.
Studio director Rob McPherson at the Derbyshire firm, who have also created the Streets of Monaco super-yacht, said: 'The exterior was designed to give the impression of waves breaking around a volcanic island, whilst maintaining the look of a contemporary yacht design.
'It comes with its own private beach cove and a waterfall cascading down from a volcano.
'This design centres around a secluded island paradise, with elements inspired by the islands of the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Polynesia. It is set to be a big hit when it comes onto the market.'
The lavish yacht can accommodate up to 10 guests - and can travel along at a top speed of 15 knots.
The main deck is a secluded beach 'cove' of cabanas surrounding a massive ocean view swimming pool.

 Spectacular: There is also a huge helicopter landing pad for those quick trips to shore
And should the millionaire future owners get tired of taking a dip in the pool, they can sail out into the sea on their very own floating island complete with deck chairs and palm trees.
McPherson added: 'We had two reasons for designing such a boat. The first being that it's good fun, and secondly the current market is pretty saturated with designs that look fairly similar.
'Our mission is to work on incredibly fun designs and carve a niche for ourselves within the market, a place where other designers fear to tread.'
Inside the huge, towering volcano is a cinema, library, games room, gym, spa and VIP suites - including an owners pad spread over two decks.
The boat - which has yet to hit the market and hasn't had a price set - is causing waves in the boat building world with its unique design.

View from the top: The lavish liner can accommodate up to 10 guests and has a landing pad and huge bar set behind beach cabanas.

Fishing in Khour Kalba ... صيد السمك في خور كلبا

  صيد السمك في خور كلبا بطريقة "الضغوه"
الصيد بـ "الضغوة" يعتمد على سير القارب في عرض البحر مسافة بحرية لا تقل عن أربعة كيلومترات ويتم إلقاء شبكة ذات فتحات صغيرة ويصل طولها الى 1500 متر في أعماق البحر بينما يمسك الصيادون على القارب بطرفيها ثم يتحرك القارب ببطء نحو الشاطئ فتتخذ الشبكة شكل القوس لجمع كميات كبيرة من الأسماك يتم بعدها مراوغة الأسماك وإخافتها لتتوجه إلى مؤخرة الشبكة وتسمى "المحصر" وعند وصول طرفي الشبك الى الساحل يتم جرها باستخدام سيارات الدفع الرباعي وتجميعه حتى يخرج الشبك بكامله بما يحمله من صيد.
 تقع كلباء في الساحل الشرقي لدولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة وهي احدى مدن امارة الشارقه وتطل على خليج عمان تفصلها عن الفجيره 15 كيلومترا.
