Black-headed gull saves tufted duck's life

This 3 October 2020 photo by Dutch photographer Beverfoto shows a tufted duck in danger of being killed by a herring gull, being saved by a young black-headed gull.

The herring gull caught the duck three times. But first a great egret, then the black-headed gull intervened. After the third time, the herring gull gave up, and the duck swam on.
