Rescued seabirds found covered in oil to be released back into wild
Scores of seabirds birds found on the south coast covered in an oil additive are due to be released back into the wild soon.
More than 300 birds, mainly guillemots, were taken in by the RSPCA after being found covered in glue-like polyisobutene.
The birds were found in Dorset, Cornwall, Hampshire and Sussex. About 70 of the birds have been moved to an outdoor pool at the West Hatch Animal Centre near Taunton, Somerset, but there are a similar number which are not yet ready to go outside.
Overall, about 200 birds were saved.
