Yes!!! Guess what I am having for dinner tonight.....

I was quite a distance from this bird when I noticed he was having alot of trouble trying to get the food into his belly.
It was only when I put the images on screen I realised what he was eating.
You can see the movement in his head as he was shaking it.

EDIT. at Lotherton Hall they feed the large birds dead baby chickens....
