Gull fight! Herring Gull vs Lesser Black-backed Gull – 20140329

I came across these gulls fighting today: Herring Gull versus Lesser Black-backed Gull. The Lesser Black-backed Gull was no match for the Herring Gull.

A Eurasian Coot Fulica atra got involved as well; I guess such behavior is unacceptable in his pond…
