A squadron of gulls intercepted me at about 25 seconds into the video...I went sport mode, out-climbed them, did a quick trip away and back to wear them out and get some separation, then did a quick hand-catch- did not fly at that spot again:

Nice place to fly ;)

This guys can be pretty aggressive.

I was catching some footage in Sardinia in a place with lots of seagulls.
During one flight a seagull came as close to my Mavic that the MP even interrupted its flight. Then stabilized again and went on.

There were a couple jumps in the video. Were those actual bird strikes?

I do not think there were any strikes....but there were a lot of birds around so it is possible ...I am pretty sure that it was camera/gimbal jumpiness from recording in sport mode.

Gotcha... wasn’t sure. I haven’t seen my video do that in sport mode so wasn’t sure. Great getaway!!!!
