Fabel hit his tee shot at the 17th on to the heart of the green, where a seagull was lurking close by and began walking towards his ball. 

 The seagull had a couple of attempts of grabbing hold of the ball before securing it in its beak and flying off, where the bird then promptly dropped it in the hazard.
