Peck off, that's mine! Seagull sneaks up behind penguin... and steals its fish supper

It can be tough work being a penguin sometimes, as this one discovered today when a cheeky intruder stole its lunch.

The black and white flightless bird was looking forward to tucking into a fish supper at a Scottish safari park.

But as it waddled over to feast on the sprat, a seagull swooped in on the action.

Being able to fly gave the thief a clear advantage, who made light work of its catch.

The penguin was left looking rather hacked off as it stared at the spot where its dinner lay moments earlier.

The incident was captured on camera during feeding time at Blair Drummond Safari Park near Stirling.
