But in London, seagulls that keep landing on a traffic camera are giving their own view of traffic and generating plenty of online comments.

"This is the best thing that has happened in this world", one person tweeted.

A few birds in London got some serious face time with a traffic camera this week.

Seagulls have previously photobombed traffic cameras in Glasgow - once on the M8 near the airport in April 2014, and again in the centre earlier this month on April 12.

A quick scroll down Transport for London's (TfL's) Twitter feed reveals countless tweets about collisions here and delays there, without so much as a single like or retweet. Perhaps they will tweet out a more X-rated video of Graeme and Steve at Brunswick Road later.

In sexual assault and rape cases, it is illegal for the name of the complainant or a photograph of them to be published anywhere. But campaigners say this is not the way to go and could stop rape victims from coming forward.

On popular demand, they soon inducted the seagull as a reporter and shared an update with their Twitter followers.

"Guess who's back?!" the agency said, posting a photo of the bird just inches away from the camera.

"Well, Brad and Diane, as you can see (gull).I-87 is really for the birds today".

Meanwhile, a TfL spokesman has thanked Graeme and Steve for their help.
