Maybe thats the reason why it went un noticed?
Its a every day occurance on the beach to see a sea gull, that you become blind to it, I dont walk through manchester  city center and go "oooh a pidgeon" every 4 seconds.

No, a pelican, lol.

You're right, seagulls are easy to ignore.

But a bird that size that would be standing on the ground is pelican sized, not seagull.

Could be a bird?
A plane?
It's SUPER Pelican!!

Could be a bird, depending on what time of year. If it's in the summer I'd poke a guess at a tern :tu:

Depends on if it was windy, could be a poly bag, but the shap does look to me like a tern.

Here's an arctic tern. Terns tend to nest in quite exposed places, like slap bang on the beach. If disturbed it'd rise up, and usually end up goign for you, but if you weren't hanging around in that spot then i guess it would settle down again without too much drama. Could even be a gull, or a grey plover; something like that :)

OK so the colour might not quite be right, but having owned phones with very basic cameras (as a lot of us will have) they do tend to, especially in low light, produce blobs, often of one colour. At least mines always have :(

Of course, I meant no offence to the OP in my reply.

As for pelican's and tern's, I still believe its a run of the mill sea gull, low to the ground(obviously), in a turn.

They do it all the time.

What is misleading in the picture is the distance from the camera, height of the bird and height of the photographer.
If the picture was taken from the top of a sand bank, the bird flying past would look like its on the floor, yet in reality its 8 ft above it.

If what I type offends you, don't see it as an attack, but as my opinion.

Aye they do that! :)

Startled gull, or any bird for that matter, can naturally have a slightly jerky, unnatural looking flight.

My experience with phone cameras is that they often yield quite misleading results :lol:

Think thats just clutching at straws now.

Can you dent a camera lens?  Crack it yeah, but dent it?

I think it's water drops.

Eh, why not?

It is interesting.I think it is an earth spirit of some kind. I caught one with my camera. It is a good photo.
