(half to the informer, halt to the credit of the county rate), with costs, on any person killing, wounding, or taking any sea bird, or using any instrument for so doing, or having in his control or possession any sea bird recently killed, wounded, or taken, between the 1st of May and the 1st of August, the breeding seasor). But the Bill is not to extend to sea birds taken bond fide for use as food. The offender refusing to give his real name and address to any person requiring it is to be liable to a further penalty not exceeding 40s., with costs. Sea birds are to be deemed to include the different species of gulls, awks, guillemots, cormorants puffins, terns, oyster-catchers, skuas, petrels, gannets, divers, razor- bills, shearwaters and grebes, merganser, eider ducks, and snieldrakes.
