This is the hilarious moment a photobombing seagull sabotaged a couple’s attempt at a romantic sunset video in Western Australia.
Jace Spicer, 26, and his girlfriend Makita Donovan, 24, were taking a stroll on a picturesque beach in Dampier on August 31 when they decided to film themselves walking towards the sea hand in hand as the sun set in front of them.
The pair had hoped to capture some pictures and footage of the sweet moment – but a sneaky seagull had other plans.

The hilarious footage looks as though the seagull is attempting to peck at the pair in the distance
In the video, the gull can be seen casually walking into shot before appearing to peck at Jace’s head – and even looking like he might eat the couple in the distance.
A second seagull then joins in – completely blocking the pair from view.
The pair of troublemakers are heard screeching all the way through.
Jace and Makita, who have been together for seven months but have known each other for 10 years, didn’t realise what had happened until they watched the footage back the following day.
Jace, who lives in Wickham, Australia, said: ‘We decided to head down and watch the sunset in the hope of getting a few nice photos and a possible romantic video of us walking off into the sunset.
‘We honestly thought we’d done well. It wasn’t until the next day when we decided to have a look at the footage and what wonderful photos we had taken that we realised what had happened.

‘The first five seconds in on the video we were really feeling it, we were thinking it was going to be such a great sunset video, that was until the seagull fully interrupted our clip.
‘We looked at each other and burst out laughing, we had to keep rewinding the video in disbelief to see what actually happened.
‘We kept laughing until we were out of breath.
‘It honestly looks like the seagull knows he’s just ruined our romantic video and laughed at us.
‘It’s definitely the best photo bomb that’s happened to us.
‘The unfortunate photo bomb has made this clip 10 times better and we’re just happy that others found it as funny as we did.
‘I turned to the girlfriend after watching the video and had to say “what if that’s where I went to propose to you?”‘
It’s not the first time seagulls have had social media in stitches this year.
Gully the seagull shows off her barking skills on top of a Wayne Scholes’s balcony in Liverpool
Scholes said the seagull has been staying on his balcony since her baby cannot fly yet. He asked the bird to bark instead of squawk after she was being too noisy, and to his surprised, she did
Footage filmed in July by Wayne Scholes in Liverpool, in the UK, shows the moment a gull barked back at him on his balcony.
‘Hey, look, I think my seagull barks. Watch this…’ he says in the video, before barking like a dog.
The bird hesitates for a moment before making a sound that sounds just like a bark.
He said: ‘Gully can be quite noisy. One night I asked her politely if she could try making a less obnoxious noise. I suggested barking.
‘To my surprise, she copied me! Every day I’ll call at her and she’ll bark at me.’
Usually an aggressive breed, Gully had become fond of the man. He said: ‘We’ve become pretty good friends.’
