Spin 1038 DJ, Daniella Moyles, picked up a new friend to bring to the office today – which we assume isn't a regular occurrence. 

She was on her way to work when she spotted a hobbling injured baby seagull on the side of the road. Nooooo!

She stopped to help the little guy and somehow got him into a cardboard box and into the safety of her car. 

Daniella tried getting in touch with as many vets as she could in the city, but given that it was so early, most of them were all still closed. 

Thankfully, someone listening in to the breakfast show texted the guys with the name of a vet that specialised in birds and would be able to help them.

The well-known Spinis transported the bird out to the veterinary clinic in Raheny in Dublin and Hoppy finally got the help she (or he, we're still not sure) needed.

The little bird has been given painkillers (phew) and it turns out she just has a small fracture but that should be OK soon.

Hurrah! And congratulations to Ms Moyles on her good deed for the day.

Dublin’s seagulls have been getting a very bad rep for themselves lately, and now Irish singer Bressie has declared war on them!

It seems The Voice Ireland judge was at the mercy of some feisty gulls while out training for his triathlon yesterday.

“The sea gulls got me. We are in a war people,” the singer tweeted last night, with a snap of a pretty nasty head wound.

“Day before triathlon and split head. Good start,” he added.

Poor Bressie!

Bressie’s gull bashing comes after a Fianna Fail senator called on the Government to take action against “raucous” seagulls that are attacking young children.

Ned O’Sullivan said seagulls have “lost the run of themselves” in Dublin City and are even taking lollipops from children.

We wonder if there’s such a thing as Anger Management classes for birds…
