Hibs player nails seagull flying above the pitch during friendly

During Hibernian's friendly at Dunfermline on Tuesday, defender Callum Booth did something far more difficult than scoring a goal when his clearance attempt hit a seagull flying above the pitch. The bird was able to recover from the impact and reroute its flight and the ball made it up to one of Booth's teammates.

Hibs were relegated from the Scottish Premier League last season, but this puts them atop the preseason gull hitting table. The club's YouTube account claims "no birds were harmed in the making of this video," but that one seagull that got smashed by a football might disagree.
