Description

A number of black backed gulls were using the fishing technique of paddling about in shallow water until they spot something beneath the water. They then leap up and dive down to it. Both juveniles and adults exhibited their skills and were catching common cushion starfish from the sandy bottom, and somehow swallow them down whole. (I had previously wondered why the starfish seemed most common at a depth of 1.5m or more - it appears that the gulls can pick them off from shallower depths.). Practically no wind, so water relatively still and clear.

Description

Pin cushion, short armed starfish on the sandy bottom in about 1.5m of water at low tide (a couple of unlucky specimens found at a depth of only 500mm and selected for photography). Quite abundant, spaced about 300mm apart on sea floor. Mainly 5 armed and dark green in colour.
