Herring Gull

An untimely end to a young kittewake. Almost as soon as it fell off its ledge it was pounced on. It took a few minutes of pecking to kill it, fly off and swallow it whole, not a pleasant sight but a necessary one, as the bird would have died sooner or later. Taken from the road under the kittewake colony at Scarborough castle.
