WATCH: 'Lost' seabird rescued from Cornwall beach

A seabird not normally spotted on beaches in the Duchy has been rescued by a dog walker in north Cornwall.
Kaz Cox spotted the beautiful puffin in the middle of Crooklets Beach, Bude, over the weekend.
Realising it was in trouble, she contacted animal rescuer Sue Gear, who is now helping the bird get back on its feet.
And this new, heart-warming footage shows him on the road to recovery.
Sue says he appears to be some way from home - and was more likely to be heading to Lundy Island than Crooklets.
On her Born to be Wild Facebook page, she said: "This beautiful Puffin was found on middle beach between Crooklets beach and the sea pool this morning by Kaz Cox.
"I met Kaz in Bude while picking up injured pigeon and sickly hedgehog.
"Although it is looking great we have been watching and feeding him all and have noticed he has a head tilt, so I an now wondering if it has had a bit of a knock on the head??
"time will tell, I am really pleased I have got him to eat his sand eels, that's got to be a positive sign, fingers crossed for this special little bird".
According to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, puffins are known as the 'clowns' of the coast with their brightly-coloured bills, bumpy landings and waddling walk.
They are usually spotted on cliffs and islands at scattered locations around the coast of Scotland, northern England, south-west England and Wales.6:29am 21st April 2017
