Video: Seagulls dive bomb court during Murray-Ferrer semifinal

So far at the Australian Open there have been match interruptions caused by a bounce-less court, fireworks, broken racquet heads, flyovers and a woman falling down the stairs.

From Friday night's Andy Murray-David Ferrer semifinal, won by Murray in four sets:

As Chris Fowler said on ESPN, an entire flock of seagulls flew around the stadium and began dive-bombing the court like they were looking for small fish out in the Pacific. That's frightening stuff. Kudos to Murray and Ferrer for not running, running so far away.
