Rough wintry conditions at sea are probably behind the death of seabirds found on Sumner Beach, says the Department of Conservation (DOC). On Saturday, The Press reported that four shags had been found dead on Sumner Beach by Coast to Coast organiser and Sumner resident Robin Judkins. Yesterday, Sumner resident Jill Sainsbury reported she had found four dead seagulls on nearby Scarborough Beach whilst walking there last week. "What alerted me to them was that they were all in really beautiful condition," said Sainsbury. "I was watching the behaviour of the other gulls around and they seemed so sad. It had obviously disturbed them.". Judkins found another dead shag on Sumner Beach on Saturday. A South Brighton resident said he had seen a seagull dive into the water and then die suddenly about 40m out to sea near Scarborough.
