An eastern pelican in London's St. James's Park ate a pigeon. Here is how Cathal McNaughton, the photographer of the event, described the scene:
Mr McNaughton, from the Press Association, said: "The pelican was on the towpath preening itself, and there were a lot of tourists watching it.Pelicans normally eat strictly fish, but when pigeons are an easy meal, there is less need to be discriminating. That is a great picture.
"Then the bird got up and strolled along until it reached one of the pigeons, which it just grabbed in its beak.
"There was a bit of a struggle for about 20 minutes, with all these people watching. The pelican only opened its mouth a couple of times.
"Then it managed to get the pigeon to go head first down its throat. It was kicking and flapping the whole way down."
