Hungry Gull

While on the Saltees last week I watched a baby Razorbill being eaten alive by a hungry Great Black-backed Gull.  The incident took about four minutes as the gull tried many times to position the chick to swallow it down.  The brave little chick put up a good fight but the might and power of the Great Black-backed won out in the end.
