A large section of Cardiff Bay Link Road in Cardiff, Wales was closed off for Doctor Who filming late Sunday night, February 10 for a night shoot.
One person at the scene captured a photo of the filming involving automobiles, one with a camera mount.
#dwsr They’ve been filming some kind of car chase/road scene within the Cardiff Bay Link Road tunnel. There is a whole area set up outside the tunnel by the queensgate roundabout which is where I assume they will move onto next. No cast spotted. pic.twitter.com/88vuG3DToO

A large crane with a floodlight illuminated the scene.

There is also a report of “seagulls” at the location. From what we understand, there were large birds resembling seagulls “floating” in the air at the filming location.
The “floating seagulls” could have been drones mounted with cameras for filming. Since seagulls are not an uncommon sight in Cardiff Bay, a person watching from a distance and unfamiliar with drones could possibly have mistaken them for birds.
dw peeps my good friend @prongslily witnessed doctor who filming and reported seeing floating sea gulls, buzzing for series 12 lads x thirteen vs seagull
