This seagull captured some stunning shots after stealing a tourist's camera

Are seagulls changing their ways?

SEAGULLS GET A lot of stick in Ireland.

They’re loud, they’re everywhere, and they have even been known to steal children’s lollipops.

But one Spanish seagull, behaving in a way typical of this brash species of bird, ended up capturing something beautiful.

A German tourist on holiday in Spain had left his GoPro camera on a ledge while it was recording.

One enterprising gull decided to grab the device.

In the full video you can hear the shouts of the camera’s unhappy owners.

The views it captured of the coast are stunning.

Rather uncharacteristically for a seagull, it very politely left the device back where it found it.
