A crowd gathered around my Mavic

I was watching the sun come down across a field and while just hovering in the same spot for ten mins or so, I drew a rather large crowd.

Not of people… of birds!

Couldn’t tell what they were from 90m below, but they were either swifts or swallows.

Either way, these birds paying waaaaayyyyyy too much attention to my Mavic!

I had fifteen to twenty of them, all circling my bird :open_mouth:

They didn’t seem to dive on it, but they were circling me the entire time I was up there!

I believe the best way to avoid bird attack is to gain altitude quickly. Evidently they can’t do that. Never tried it, just seen it mentioned in a few vids.
