Nice timing, I've not managed to catch one actually attacking some food. There are a lot about the Northumberland coast this year.

Thanks John.

This was part of a sequence of the Curlew eating a crab and the sequence of tackling this task. Forum thread http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...ghlight=Curlew

Its the first time I have seen them tackling such a large meal.

Peter
