Hundreds of seabirds - some dead and others covered in oil - have been washed ashore in south-west England.
The RSPB believes most of the deaths were a "sad but natural occurrence" after the recent stormy weather.
In Devon, about 40 puffins, guillemots and razorbills were found at Thurlstone, while others have been reported from Hampshire to Cornwall.
Some of the "pitiful" oiled birds are being cared for at the South Devon Seabird Trust in Teignmouth.
The trust's founder, Jean Bradford, told BBC News: "It's a catastrophe and I think with everything else that's going on with people, the birds and other animals have been overlooked a little bit."
