Daybreak(fast) Robbery

In a dramatic snatch caught on camera by one of our Field Corresponents, Gunter Lensmann, a Common Coot Fulica atra was enjoying a nice quiet breakfast of Bream Abramis brama at the water's edge, when suddenly a Red Fox Vulpes vulpes sprang out of the reeds and grabbed the Bream from under the beak of the Coot. Luckily the Coot wasn't the aftercourse.
