"Bald eagles, Heron, Otters, Sea gulls - all chasing the herring spawning - Nature's unbelievable beauty

Carol Hunter's attention to detail gives this 8 min. video one of amazing artistic beauty.

24 eagles, scores of heron, hundreds of otters, thousands of ducks and millions of sea gulls, all gathering over a period of a few days while herring beyond number arrive for the annual spawning.

A spring nature ritual that happens on the coast: the annual herring spawn in early spring.

There’s been a lot of concern about too many herring being fished by the commercial fishing industry. This video shows beautifully how crucial the herring are to the entire coastal web of life.
