Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_07 : Gull & Eel

As we walked back along the shore path, this young gull made an exciting discovery - a dead eel. The rest of the gulls were on the other side of the port with the fishing boats. Young gulls always eat last so this one tried to swallow the eel whole. The eel was too big. The gull started to panic. Older gulls were patrolling ever nearer. Finally, the gull dragged the eel onto the shore and began feeding on the side of the eel. The way it was eating promised that the older gulls would find only skin and bones when it was done.
