Great shots - shot #1 is a true stunner. Nicely done!

Photo 3 - my 'least favourite' of this series, however still a good shot in its own right.

Great use of the fill flash. I'm glad he/she/it was patient enough to let you take a few shots. (Gulls can be kind for 'practising' our wildlife photography). What distance were you from it?

Thanks for the detailed review Paul.
I agree, #3 is probably the least appealing of the lot. This gull must be a regular at the Inn where we were staying because it had no fear. I think I was about 4 to 6 feet (1- 2 meters) when I took these shots.

Cheers Steve
