Gulls – an interesting update

Just a very quick one this morning – thought I’d share this interesting gull behaviour I saw yesterday down on Shapwick Heath, on the Somerset Levels:

Gull eating baby moorhen

If you look closely at the gull on the right, it’s in the process of swallowing a baby moorhen whole. A good example of gulls as predators – sad for the parent moorhens but all perfectly natural!
