Welsh Government Minister for Climate Change Julie James views Grassholm from an RSPCA boat after Pembrokeshire County Council confirms hundreds of dead wild sea birds have washed up on their beaches in recent days with suspected avian influenza.

Gannets are recognised for their pale blue iris, which scientists have now discovered turns black in survivors of avian influenza. It is unknown, but hoped, that some immunity will be passed onto their young.

Visible gaps on Grassholm reveal a decimated population, leaving concern over how well this iconic species will recover.
