"The birds appear disoriented and confused and strugle to stand".

The birds have come in from Dawlish, Exeter and Sidmouth in Devon to Bridport and Lyme Regis in Dorset.

Animal rescuers in Britain said they have noted an uptick in calls to rescue "drunk" seagulls that apparently got into brewery waste.

Mr Couper, who has treated the birds at an RSPCA centre in Taunton in Somerset, added: "Sadly, a few of the birds have died but majority have made good recoveries and have been released after a few days in our care".

Fire fighter Watch Manager in Charge Virgil Turner said: 'When I picked up the gull he immediately threw-up all over me and he reeked of beer'. Experts have warned that they could be drinking leftover alcohol on the beaches of the southwest or eating grain by-products from a brewery in the area.

Inspector Jo Daniels said: "We think they're gaining access to some brewing waste products somewhere".

Talking to Metro, vet David Couper explained how freaky that there have been so many instances.

'Some of the birds have been found unconscious or staggering and all were reeking of alcohol.

A number of birds exhibiting the same symptoms in recent weeks have been picked up by staff, smelling of alcohol and vomiting.

The charity is urging local alcohol producers, distilleries and breweries to check their waste is secure and that it can not be accessed by wildlife.

"At first, the birds look like they have botulism (an illness caused by bacteria) but then, after vomiting, most seem to recover".
