Hope For Sea Birds Washed Up On Dorset Coast


9:16am 2nd February 2013

There's hope the hundred plus seabirds rescued from Weymouth and Portland after becoming contaminated can be rehabilitated back to full health.

The RSPCA's West Hatch centre is caring for the Guillemots that were saved off the beaches yesterday (Friday 1st February) and on Thursday.

Many died after becoming covered in the sticky mixture of refined mineral oils.

Peter Venn is in charge of the West Hatch Centre, he told Wessex FM some birds that are still struggling in the coming days will be washed again before being moving from the centre to an outside pool. When the do go back outside, it's a more natural environment for them and we can observe them on the water and see how they're getting on, and if they're stress levels are normal".
