Fans of Scottish football club Hibernian haven't had much to cheer about in recent times after a miserable season ended in relegation from the Scottish Premier League to the Championship.

So they may not have expected much from one of their pre-season friendlies against Dunfermline until one of their defenders brought the local wildlife into play.

Callum Booth's clearance looks to have been the highlight of the match when he struck a seagull flying around Easter Road.

In contrast to the professionals, the bird took a dive but didn't roll over on the floor in 'agony'.
