The amount of wildlife inhabiting our coasts is simply amazing. No fewer than 8 million seabirds from 25 different species breed in Britain and Ireland.
This is often credited to a broad coastline that offers a wide range of habitats to all types of seabirds.
As well as this, there is literally an ocean of food readily available to them and when you add a relatively minimal amount of contact with human, it can all add up to an ideal environment to exist in.
