Five birds come in contact with oil spill

AN OIL spill at the Port of Brisbane overnight has affected at least five birds.

The spill, believed to be between five and 10 tonnes of heavy oil, could take up to a week to clean up.

The Environment and Heritage Protection Department has confirmed four pelicans and one cormorant came in contact with oil at the spill site.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service is helping the department with marine parks vessels and officers experienced in oiled wildlife recovery.
