During this flight more times seagulls close to Mavic Pro with attacks and with your tipical sound. With attention finish the experience from beach to harbour along a river. Seagulls attacks are in slow motion. I hope you enjoy it.

Not sure if they are actually attacking your drone. I fly in the country a lot and I've always got birds circling my drone (usually swallows for some odd reason). I've had a few close calls with hawks and even an eagle, but they seemed more curious as to what the new "bird" was than anything else.

I have seen videos of hawks literally attacking a drone in flight and the pilot said he was flying over their nest when it happened, so that makes sense (bird defending their young). Trust me, if a bird attacks your drone, you'll know it. Otherwise, they're probably just curious.

Seagulls are also curios but the flight was realized more than two months ago when birds had "child". At about 30 meter it's dangerous to fly but if immediatly go up more o down more seagulls don't follow Mavic. Thanks for appreciation and suggestion.

Very nice footage buddy, those seagulls got close and are generally very aggressive and best avoided. You did well and the footage is wonderful

Seagulls are the worst. I had the same happen to me a while back in France. One of them felt annoyed and all the buddies came along trying to take my Mavic down. I had to turn off the avoidance sensors as the aircraft constantly had to break since the seagulls came so close.

Just the seagulls attack in group but usually they are at the same altitude. Unpredictable. Thank you for your testimony.

It's important to use an anti-seagulls radar
