As my partner pointed out, a week or so ago the entire south coast of entire was blighted with a strange smell from France. Are we alone in wondering if the two events are somehow connected. Those pesky French.

This is so sad :( I really hope the source of the problem is discovered and all the surviving birds recover well.

Kudos to all those involved trying to resolve the situation. xxx

This comes as no surprise as the ocean is still the dumping ground for all the chemicals we use in day to day life. It will be more likely their food supply. Some contaminated mollusks along the coast somewhere. I really like to see if anyone would take responsibility if a source was identified. Or just an ignorant plea which will be forgotten very quickly.

A ship being towed sank off Torbay on 13 Jan 13. Its tug was damaged but later limped into Portland.
