"Dutch scientists are baffled over that about 20 000 dead and dying guillemots washed up on the shores of the North sea. The birds are showing signs of severe malnutrition, but what caused the massdöden is unclear."
"– We still don't know what the answer is. It is an alarming situation, " says Mardik Leopold, a marine biologist at the university of Wageningen."
"the Birds have washed up on the Frisian islands, but nothing similar has been seen in Belgium or Germany. It allows the researchers do not believe that the supply of feed depending on the outlook can be the reason, because the weather has been similar in the three countries."
"the Dutch media have pointed to the containers that fell from a ship in the area for more than a month ago, and that the birds may have been in itself something harmful from them. But nothing so far suggest it, as Mardik Leopold."
"– the Birds were not covered by the oil, either, " he adds."
