Great Black-backed Gull swooping out over the sea hunting for fish, the blue colour of the ocean blending seamlessly into pristine blue skies.Although Great Black-back Gulls, like many seagulls are known for the fact that they are scavengers at refuse tips, they also hunt and kill live prey. They can be seen hunting along the coastlines, especially during the breeding season, preying on seabird eggs, nestlings or fledgelings. Great Black-backed Gulls will also hunt over the ocean near the coastline, grabbing fish that swim too close to the surface of the sea.
