A very persistent Herring Gull was continually jumping from the waters surface and diving headlong in, after a while it managed to catch a crab but was so shocked it dropped it and had to search again eventually picking it up and flying away to devour the crab, it also fished for a flat fish. I was fortunate enough to record the event on camera.

what a persistent chap - both you and the gull. A fantastic series of photos that really tell a story.
