Glaucous gull
This sequence shows a glaucous
gull raid on a kittewake colony.  
The glaucous gull makes off
with a chick and is pursued by
several furious kittewakes.  The
final shots show the chick as a
lump in the glaucus gull’s throat.

Whilst this sequence appears
cruel I have pictured below a
glaucous gull chick in its nest.  
This nest was only a few yards
from the  kittewake colony.
