Description:

This sequence shows a fine Carrion Crow with a Freshwater Mussel. It was some distance off, or the images would have been better - they're heavily cropped.
I once saw a cormorant on the same lake with what at the time I thought might be a released turtle (I know this has happened - there was a Red-eared Turtle there for a while), but I which now think may have been a very large mussel. This as even FURTHER off. Picture attached...
