Today was a decent day for flying so took the drone in front of blackpool tower on the beach, went out to sea a bit then heard the cries of seagulls, must have been 40 or more started to chase my drone, I had to flick into sports mode to evade them did a circuit around the beach while seagulls hot on my tail, wish I was able to film this as the people watching was going historical pointing what seemed a life time and a heart in mouth moment, needless to say no seagulls was injured nor my p4, I subsequently moved further down from the life boat building as the seagulls seemed to gang up there.!!

Didn't record as I was setting horizon well trying to before I was under attack

Was they chasing me as I'm seen as a threat or was they having a good laugh, as they did sound like they was!!

birds are very interested in P4's, from little wagtails, to magpies, seagulls, then hawks and eagles, we have them all in Australia.

If you fly anywhere near their nest, they may attack the drone.

Possible as there were lots of the darker ones not gone completely white, so maybe after drone, seagulls in Blackpool are very brazen, clear a family from a table earring food no problems, so a drone is easy pickings

When I had problems with seagulls I used to climb higher than them and always lost them in safety ;)

When I fly around my place late in the afternoon, sometimes dozens of small birds fly around my drone. At first it scared the cr@p out of me, later i just started to relax and play with them. They were just checking me out and no contact was made with any of them even after I started to play with them flying around a little crazy.  They are much better flyers than I.
