We were not sure what was being eaten, hence the question mark after gull in the regards line.

It walked around the beach for awhile and then began eating a large bird which we guessed was a gull. None of us saw it take down a bird so the peregrine most likely returned to a prior kill. It was our understanding that peregrines are not scavengers. I would be interested in other interpretations of what happened.
