Great black-backed gull makes a rabbit disappear

These gulls are one of the main predators on Skomer Island, a specially protected area and national nature reserve off the coast of Wales.

Great black backed gulls are the largest members of the gull family, they are highly predatory and frequently hunt and kill any prey smaller than themselves. Most prey are swallowed whole.

Other raptors and seabirds who hunt on the island need be wary of these gulls, as they are skilled kleptoparasites – in other words, they steal a lot of their meals from other predators.
