CommentDuring our visit to Michaelmas Cay there was a commotion at the noddy colony when a Silver Gull snatched a chick and flew to the beach where other gulls contested for the prize. One of the gulls managed to break free and was pursued over the water where it dropped the chick which was immediately taken by a Giant Trevally. We were later shown an Attenborough video clip from Blue Planet II showing GTs taking birds on the water and even leaping to take low-flying birds.
