Gull mobbing puffin

By kfjmiller      
This is one of a series of images of a gull on Staple Island in the Farnes stealing sand eels from a puffin. The puffin actually flew directly into its burrow, only to be pulled out by its tail and then shaken until the fish were dropped. The other images can be seen on flickr [Link removed by ePz - please see site T&Cs]

These gulls are predators in their own special way. Mobbing others is sport for them. Wink
