Sea bird wreck....

Another unfortunate consequence of the bad weather we've been experiencing in the UK, is the effect it has on many of our sea birds. On a visit to Abbotsbury in Dorset, Andy Grinter saw some of the many hundreds of dead auks that have been washing up onto our shores over the last couple of weeks. The seas have been so rough that they haven't been able to feed properly - the result is a very high mortality rate.

He did catch up with a few other goodies too though...
