This is not a quality capture - this gull was a long ways off on the river but I had never seen gulls diving into the water from a height before.

Thisbird wouldfly in a tight circleabout 10 feet high and then swoop down and plunge into the water. Depth of water was maybe 6 to 8 inches on that part ofthe river.

I was in burst mode and caught it just before it hit the water - the next photo (not included) was less interesting - just a splash of water.

I thought some of you might find his pre-splash position interesting (quality issues aside).

BTW, the gull eventually caught a crayfish doing this but flew off beforeI couldshoot it.

Cheers, Dan
