Acute incidents seriously threaten seabird populations already under pressure
Seabirds that are already under pressure because of climatic change become more vulnerable when exposed to additional man-made incidents leading to acute population declines.
Common eiders are scared by boats
The disturbance effect of recreational boat driving may be considerable for moulting eiders.
Puffins and razorbills choose different strategies in harsh winter conditions
Puffins change their diet while razorbills seek out new foraging areas.
