With the tide very low on a windy Rissers today, I observed a seagull doing its thing with a clam or to be more accurate an Atlantic Surf Clam. To get to the goodies inside, I watched as the seagull took flight a couple of times with the clam firmly fixed in his beak. He would then drop it from a height of about 25/30 feet to break it open on the hard wet sand.
With the spoils now available, there was no way he was going to share his lunch with anyone.
Just a short distance from this activity was what I thought, a very attractive piece of seaweed ….
