Cornwall's wildlife takes a battering in the storms.
A rare whale washed up at Marazion is amongst of hundreds of seabirds, seals and dolphins injured or killed.

Nikki Clear from Cornwall Wildlife Trust says conditions are unprecedented: "It's exhausting the birds and they're just not able to cope, especially as more and more are coming in closer to the coast as their breeding season begins. We've also had a few seals again from the weather and again it's the end of their breeding season so a lot of the seal pups are affected."
She added if we spot something - report it: "Wild animals can be dangerous and can cause injuries if they're distressed and anything dead on the beach you just don't know what kind of diseases they may have so it's best just to leave it alone and call the professionals."
