When we had a guided tour at Helgoland last weekend we approached an area with sea gulls nests. This fierce looking guy was defending his nest against me, he flew a dozen attacks on me. Every time he flew straight towards me, close over my head, made a real intimidating sound and repeated the maneuvre. I was glad that he had no bombs on board to threw on me...:smile:

Lovely pose, but I don't think you were in much danger.
Gulls are cowards - Arctic terns are the real warriors (so are some skuas/jaegers I believe). I got pecked a dozen times and decorated again on Inner Farne on Saturday. I'm still processing the photos, but I'll try not to keep you waiting too long :smile:

Hmmm, sound like Steven King time:)

I always like Seagull shots, while come they are such pretty flyers.
