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.

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