Richard Austin Photography: Sea birds Guillimots are covered in sticky goo, margarine used to clean the feathers at the RSPCA
Staff at the RSPCA near Taunton clean the contaminated birds with a tub of Margerine.
Guillimots are the main birds affected by a mystery sticky goo. The birds are covered but the margarine seems to break it down before they are washed with Fairy Liquid.
After a fattening up few days the birds will go back to the wild, shinning like a new pin!
