Who ate all the Pieds?

A weekend in Brighton visiting family usually provides an opportunity to look for Purple Sandpipers on the walls of Brighton Marina. But bad weather saw the walls closed to the public leaving only park life to photograph. The sight of this Herring Gull stretching its gizzard reminded me of seeing a Lesser Black-back eat a Moorhen at Cley a few years ago. Quite disgusting. More than enough to make the local Pied Wagtails keep a nervous distance.
