Following the recent news item on seabird disturbance we’ve received yet another report of a wildlife safari boat scattering a raft of auks off the north Cornwall coast.

It’s timely that DEFRA yesterday published a national Marine and Coastal Wildlife Code that provides comprehensive guidance to anyone watching wildlife around our shores.

Anyone witnessing boat disturbances are advised to photograph/ video and report the incident.
