Not a bad first time at it. Did you run the pictures through free Neat Image or something? I downloaded one to read EXIF data but there was none.

About remembering settings; if you remember nothing else and it is bright enough, use ISO80, Aperture priority, and keep zoom half way or slightly less until you need it, so you can adjust either way quicker.

Edited to add: that left hand gull in the second picture looks like he is standing there. Really neat pose you captured.

Nice shooting, I really like the second shot. To bad you didn't have the camera a little further left on the first one.

A couple of very nice shots for starters. Getting a truly good BIF shot is a bit of a nirvana for many. For someone like me it is the impossibility that allows me to admire others efforts. My attempts ussually result in a beautiful blue sky with a small wing tip on one side.

Like happy I tried to look at your exif. Looking at the shots I was wondering if the shutter speed was quite fast enough to freeze motion.
