Newshub reporter gets in a flap

Sometimes even the most professional of television reporters can get in a flap. 

There has been an infestation of seagulls along the Sydney's waterfront, annoying the city's residents. 

When the birds started live tweeting about a cheep lunch, Newshub's Australia correspondent Sophie Lowery bore the brunt of it.

Seagulls and pigeons have become increasingly daring in their search for a meal, with some locals saying they've even picked food off a plate which still being carried by a waiter.

While filming this piece for Newshub about the bird problem, she found out firsthand the problem. 

Sydneysiders want authorities to fix the problem, but the council's methods in the past haven't worked.
