Many of the team are very excited as tomorrow the GSPCA plans to release nine guillemots back to the wild.

Recent months have been awful for tens of thousands of seabirds who have lost their lives in the Channel.


First Guillemots of 2014 released back to the wild today outside Castle Cornet from the GSPCA in Guernsey

With all the recent sad news of the seabirds that have died around the Bailiwick recently the GSPCA are pleased to report that today 4 guillemots were successfully released back to the wild.

Alan (found at Vazon), Rachael (found at L'Eree), Chewy (found at Chouet) and Dave (found at Halfway) after 6 weeks of rehabilitation and care at the GSPCA were released below the fortification of Castle Cornet in St Peter Port.

Around the Channel Islands with the continued bad weather many of our seabirds have been injured and even perished.

Volunteers are urgently sought to collect bird bodies from beaches around the island on Saturday afternoon and take them to a collection centre at Cobo car park, opposite Le Guet, between 15:00 and 18:00.   Handwashing facilities/toilets will be available.

We also need bird experts who would be willing to identify birds brought to Cobo.
