Catch as catch can

A couple of weeks ago Roffe was off on a trip to the West Coast to watch migratory seabirds when he managed to capture this rather “fishy” fight for food between a cormorant and a herring gull.

A cormorant’s got a pretty decent catch which is immediately noticed by a sharp-eyed herring gull.

The herring gull manages to snatch the fish but is attacked by other herring gulls and loses its prey.

 

The cormorant hopes for a second chance….

But grasping all means often the risk of losing all.

Yes! I gotcha!
