Wood pigeon and Black-headed gull

I went to Slimbridge a few days ago and it was moderately successful for ducks in flight, but on a quick walk around I was struck by how many Wood pigeons were fighting each other. Two days later when there was a good sunny forecast I returned and spent the day in one spot feeding the birds and hoping for a dramatic action shot. In the warm sunshine however they were in a good mood and being very tolerant of each other with little interaction. Save for a bad tempered Black-headed gull who would not share the food with anyone. I would expect the hefty pigeon to get the better of the gull, but the gull was very dominant.

Canon EOS 1Dx. 100-400mm MK2 lens. 1600 iso. 1/5000th at f11.
