Jan. 20 (UPI) -- A construction worker in the Netherlands captured video of a territorial sea gull repeatedly dive-bombing him at a building site.

The video shows the worker at the site in Wenckebachstraat watching as the sea gull circles him in the air and repeatedly dives toward his head as if it is planning to attack.

The gull gets close to the builder, but does not appear to make contact with the man or his hard hat.

"I was doing some roof repairs, but it was the season of seagulls giving birth to their chicks," the worker wrote online. "When their eggs hatch, the seagulls are super aggressive to people that come near them."
