This gull had eyes bigger that it's gut. It wrangled with the 18 inch cod for ten minutes, finally it got it down somewhat. it then battered it's way to the point. when we left it was struggling to get it down or up. it wouldn't budge. don't know what happened after. when an Eagle sees a gull in difficulty it will pounce on it forcing it to disgorge it or if it doesn't it will kill the gull.
