Peter Hitchener, who was broadcasting on Channel Nine, somehow managed to keep a straight face despite the sudden appearance of the gull.

"I was reading away and it was a serious story, and I suddenly thought 'Oh my gosh, that seagull's back again', because we had a bit of a problem last night," Hitchener told a radio station afterwards.
"About 50 seconds to six o'clock this seagull arrived and started pecking at the camera and it had the beadiest huge eyes you've ever seen in your life."
