Rescued seabird from Wales found in Brazil

A Manx Shearwater, which was cared for by the RSPCA after it was blown off course, has been found four years after it was released - thousands of miles away in Brazil.

The bird was rescued from Haverfordwest in September 2011 and needed a wash and some rest and recuperation.

It was released a few days later in North Devon.

The RSPCA says its body was found a few days ago at Extremoz, Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil.

It is sad to hear that this bird had died, although it had survived for four years and the distance from the release location was 6,990 km.

It goes to show that the rescue and rehabilitation that the birds received was the correct course of action. Also it highlights the skills that the staff at West Hatch have and their expertise in this area. There were hundreds Shearwaters taken to West Hatch and over 400 were released.

If the RSPCA had not rescued these birds then they would likely have off perished in the surf as did hundreds of others.
