    From the seagulls I have seen, they don't want to work too hard, but yes, live on the water. Ours would live on a pond in the centre of the city, and each morning at sun up, go to work at the city dump. Fly around in lazy circle waiting for the next load of garbage to be dumped. Land. Eat. Repeat. One chasing a model boat is foolish extra work. I think of seagulls as soaring birds. You like birds of prey, I like things that soar on the wind๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hi RossM.

    Now I don't want to reopen a long debate like the "gaff sail", hahahahahahah.
    I don't know if the seagull just wanted to investigate or wasn't actually able to grab the motorboat even though he wanted to.
    I believe (but this is just my personal opinion and yours are equally valid) that, due to the shape of its wings, the seagull is unable to make sharp turns.
    Regaining space at the top makes it widen the curvature. Essential for the type of wings it has.
    Seagulls have evolved a certain type of flight that is different from that of hawks.
    The goshawk, on the other hand, can change direction in a very short space and immediately.
    Maybe it's because I love birds of prey (hawks, eagles, buzzards, kites, goshawks, harriers, etc. etc.) but I think it's like this.

    In the next tests for fast motorboats the escape from the seagull will be included, ahahahahahahah.

    I don't know if it's like this here too (in the rest of the world I mean), but here in Rome, for about thirty years or more, numerous colonies of seagulls have settled.
    Although the seagull is an absolutely maritime bird, it has adapted very well to the city.
    In part they hunt other animals (rodents, fish, pigeons and other birds) in part they rummage in landfills and take advantage of the garbage.
    They have no rival and have divided the territory with the gray crows (Corvus Cornix) who seem to be the only ones who can stand up to them.

    If you notice, every time he has to take a turn, he climbs first.
    If it had been a goshawk [accipiter gentilis], (assuming it was interested in hunting) it would not have done so and it would have captured the object much more easily.
    But perhaps the seagull only wanted to see it up close.
