'Dead' seagull returns to cricket pitch

A seagull, knocked out by a cricket ball, has apparently recovered and returned to the pitch at the Big Bash Twenty20 cricket match in Melbourne.

The bird, which had been carried lifeless from the field, appeared to revive, much to the delight of Wednesday's crowd.

Video footage of the incident now has its own #seagull hash tag on Twitter.
