A higher than usual number of seabirds are expected to wash up dead on northern beaches this summer. A marine food short- age brought on by the effects of La Nina con- ditions is the likely cul- prit and will see more young birds starving. Penguins are leaving the nest now and as inex- perienced fishers are finding the food shortage particularly hard, says Fiona McKenzie who is studying the birds for a masters degree at Massey University. There is likely to be another run of deaths at the end of January and through February when the birds moult for around three weeks -- not feeding -- then return to the water. She suggests boaties take more care as weakened birds may not be able to get out of the way quickly. Rothsay Bay's bird lady Sylvia Durrant says survival chances of washed up birds are not great but people can bring live birds to her or to SPCA bird rescue Hibiscus Coast at Stanmore Bay, call (09) 478-8819, or (09) 424-8820 respectively. It's more humane than leaving them on the beaches at the mercy of dogs or seagulls, and where children can see them,'' she says. Three penguins washed up at Orewa beach on December 15. One was taken to a vet but died after arriving.
