Hard to Swallow !

I’ve been trying to get a decent picture of a gull eating a starfish at Fairlight Cove for ages, but they won’t allow a close approach. I was pleased to find this Herring Gull on the harbour arm at Hastings today, trying to deal with a less than fresh example. It seemed to have hardened and despite a lot of attempts it wouldn’t fit down the gull’s throat. Eventually it flew off with it, pursued by an optimistic juvenile.
