Surprising prey capture technique by little auk
A new study gives a visual insight into the little auks foraging behaviour.
Report from SEAPOPs key-sites in 2017
This year’s report from SEAPOP’s key-sites gives an overview of the 2017 breeding season.
Mass mortality events of seabirds can have massive effects on populations
Hundreds of dead puffins were found beached in southwest Norway in February-March 2016. This study revealed significant consequences for the populations involved.
Warmer oceans can result in breeding failure in seabirds
Have seabirds shifted their breeding season in response to climate change?
