Take it to Judge Judy next tv court, it reminds me in an off way of the bird that was mourning for his mate,
that was ( the pictures) so sad. Love those wings in full fight mode !

Very beautiful attitudes captures. Gulls can show themselves very aggressive as soon as there is of the food to be found
