An Explanation

A reliable source told me that the gulls and dolphins were communing with each other.

Dolphins round up fish by circling them into a wild, thrashing group and then proceed to eat them. (Sharks may also do this.) The gulls catch wind of the activity and join in.

He said that he's often seen it off the Point Ferman lighthouse in San Pedro.

I'm relieved to learn that this was a normal activity and not seagulls picking on an injured dolphin!
