It's not the first time Lara has had a run-in with the winged creatures as she recently found a baby bird in her garden too.

Lara appeared a little panicked in the short clip as she also berated her dog, Riva, for getting too close to the lonely creature. 

The presenter is a huge animal lover and she previously caused quite a stir when she shared a photo of her pets inside her bedroom.

Lara posted a snapshot of her three dogs sprawled across her bed and captioned it: "When you come home from dinner to find out you have really been missed."

All of her pet pooches looked longingly at her and many of her fans called the scene, "adorable," and "so sweet," but some were less than impressed. 

"On your bed? Ugh," wrote one, while a second echoed the statement and added: "Little do you realise you are sleeping in THEIR bed," and a third asked: "Is that your bed?"

Lara adores her three furry friends, Riva, Coco and Dandy, and regularly shares photos with them on Instagram. 

She also shares her home with her husband, Rick McVey, and her two children, Katharine and son Duff, who she had when married to ex-husband David Haffenreffer.
