Atlantic Seabird Tragedy

RSPB, 04/03/2014 -- Winter storms have killed at least 28,000 seabirds in the north east Atlantic. During February more than 1,000 dead seabirds were found around the coasts of Cornwall, Devon and Dorset in south west England. Birds also washed up on beaches elsewhere around the UK and the Channel Islands. Massive seabird mortality has also been reported along the coast of south west France. Guillemots, razorbills and puffins have been the worst affected.
