Great Black-backed Gull and Carrion Crow at seal pup carcass

Great Black backed gull and crow on seal carcass

I remembered today one of the best nature spectacles in the UK: the Grey Seal colony at Donna Nook. One of theĀ things that struck me the most was the presence of Great Black-backed gulls feeding on placentas and dead seal pups. Crows were dwarfed by these awesome top predators, but joined in the feast for juicy tidbits.
