Members of the public have donated margarine and fish to help seabirds which were taken to a Somerset rescue centre after being contaminated with a mystery paraffin oil.
Staff at the RSPCA's West Hatch centre in Taunton are caring for more than 300 birds which were found covered in the sticky substance along the south coast.
The birds, mainly guillemots but some of them razorbills, were found mainly on Chesil Beach, near Portland and Weymouth.
Subsequent attempts using margarine were more successful, but as the number of the birds arriving at the centre grew, supplies of the life-saving spread dwindled until members of the public stepped in to help.
