Catalog – Local – Hundreds of emaciated, dying and dead birds have been found on a Danish island

The Danish Ornithological Society said, on Monday, that within a week the bodies of nearly two hundred dead or dying seabirds were discovered on the western coast of the Danish island of Fano in the North Sea.

The vast majority of dead birds (175) are loma, but there are many puffins and seagulls.

News of extinct seabirds and other seabirds has been coming in from the Danish town of Skagen further north for months.

There is no explanation for the mass extinction of birds yet, but Eb Kraj Petersen, a researcher at Aarhus University, said food shortages and the recent series of storms could have killed the birds together, but climate change could be a cause as well. Contributed.

According to Danish radio station DR, an unusually high number of dying seabirds are now stranded in other countries in the region, such as the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom, MTI writes.
