Description:

After posting a Great Black Back gull and Crows eating Salmon see http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/11292, today we disturbed a Buzzard feasting. Then on the top of a gorse bush we found this part of a skull. Think it is cock salmon's lower jaw that has developed a hook shape called the "kype".
