Record numbers of seabirds have been washed up dead along the south west coastline.

Experts think they struggled to feed when the storms were battering Cornwall.

Now there are fears over how many will make it back for breeding season.

Richard James from the RSPB said: "It's certainly a very high number of birds. We often get reports of dead seabirds in most years. This year we've had storm after storm and it's really had quite a significant impact and it certainly seems like one of the highest if not the highest number of birds we've had reported to us dead like this.

"These birds would soon be coming back to our shores to breed. So normally around April time they would be returning to their traditional coastal nest sites around our cliffs and obviously we have concerns over how many will come back."
