There's some really scary precision in amongst the flurry. Near the centre, a head with eye and beak lunging forward to attack, another smaller one above. They're like avenging harpies.
Plus - wasn't the light just perfect for you!

Great imagination and enterprise to try tis with Gulls.
Some luck too in amongst it all reeling and diving and a slow exposure.
But you make your own luck when you take on something like this, well done again.
