    This Gull worked very hard for this find!
    It had to put lots of effort in dragging it
    in shallower water…

    That's a lucky gull. I didn't know they were capable of catching such large fish.

    Catching the prey is not too difficult but Gulls
    are not equipped to kill such large and slimy
    preys it like Cormorants or Egrets can. And
    Gulls don't dive I believe!

    So they stay on the look out for wounded, even
    dead ones. They are partially scavengers for that
    r
    eason. They will eagerly predate small water birds
    with great success as Heron, Egrets and others will.

    I think I would be a bit concerned about two large Roach turning up dead in your lake Daniel, unless it's the same occasion as the last you showed.

    No, Roger, there are some days between the incidents.
    1. not a lake but a dammed river, a reservoir feeding the
      marsh.
    2. 5 waders species and one heavy duty diver are com-
      peting for the same food source
    3. The last meeting with the dam administrators, the local
      fishing club and interested confirmed the health of this
      shared habitat

    4. I witness, at every visit, groups of 20, 30, + fishes that,
      if the hunters are not there, swim very close to my spot.
    At this point, no reason to worry, Roger. :cool:
