The predation of invasive signal crayfish, Pacifastacus leniusculus (Dana, 1852) by several nesting pairs of lesser black-backed gull, Larus fuscus Linnaeus, 1758 is reported from Steep Holm (51°20.39' N, 3°6.53' W), one of two small islands located in the inner Bristol Channel, United Kingdom. This feeding activity was subsequently observed at a pond in South Wales.
