Colin Dunn Year: 2012Gulls going mad feasting on shoals of sand eels
Shoals of tiny sand eels have been gathering off the shores around Cromarty. Pursued by mackerel, these tiny golden fish leap from the surface attracting dense flocks of gulls and terns. I've never seen this activity so close to the shore, so caught a little video for your delectation.
