Large sea gulls with a striking black band which spans from one wing across the birds back to the other wing.
Today it was low tide and windy. The gulls were feeding on shellfish. To open the shells the birds must drop the shells from a height onto the hard sand. If a gull drops the shellfish from too greater a height then an opportunity was granted to another gull to swoop in and steal the meal. A strategic battlefield.
