Beached Bird SurveyAn international regular count of bird corpses washed up on the coast. It involves those countries bordering on the North Sea, the Irish Sea and the English Channel, and forms a useful monitoring system for bird mortality at sea, especially that caused by oiling. The survey, which originated in Britain in 1965, is jointly organised by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the seabird group.
