Oyster Snatcher and the Lesser Black-Backed Ghoul
Nature red in tooth and claw at L. Cyd last evening as the 3 Oystercatcher chicks, despite being well-grown had their number reduced by one. The adults were off seeking food, and the only real resistance was put up by a few Black-headed Gulls. Rather surprisingly, after killing the chick, the LBB left the body uneaten.
