A large number of dead sea birds have been washed up on Par Beach and other places along the South Cornwall Coast presumably as a result of the chemical discharges at sea.

I, and others have been collecting them for examination by Falmouth Marine School. This morning I located bags containing some 40 birds that had been gathered yesterday.

At high tide this morning a sweep along the beach produced another twenty They were mainly Guillemots and Razorbills but there was one Gannet and an unidentified Gull/Tern.

One lucky? Guillemot was found alive and taken away by a lady from Tywardreath to be passed to the RSPCA.
