Not a gull, but this Kestrel's a pretty agile bird.
Steve, the American Kestrel is a pretty tough capture, due to their speed and agility, they are moving constantly and at break-neck speed!  Great job, this is a really nice image!  Congrats! 8)

Kookaburra. He had just had a plunge in the dam next door and landed on this branch, which was illuminated by a beam of late afternoon light.

Not a particularly well lit (against the sun) or sharp shot. And he's a long way off. Saw this guy in our garden about a week ago looking very bloody, today he does look somewhat better. Obviously something got him. But I think he's going to survive.

Cheers

Is that a joke? Obviously not I just googled it. I got another shot this afternoon and it is a growth of some sort.
Last time it was very bloody, now seems to have a crust.
Had another one in the garden a few years ago that had something similar growing out of one eye.
It got very tame when it realized that food could be had very easily. Hung around for at least 8 weeks.
Here's a better shot taken this afternoon:
