Will scare seabirds from drowning
A new study reveals that between 4 000 and 8 000 seabirds probably drown each year in connection with the coastal gillnet-fisheries in Norway. Researchers suggest scaring the birds as a possible measure for reducing the number of deaths.

First estimates of body mass change between the breeding and wintering stages in Atlantic Puffins
Presents critical information for improving predictions of the effects of extreme weather events on the species.
The concentration of contaminants in great skuas is determined mainly by choice of prey
New research reveals that diet specialization in Arctic seabirds is more important for exposure to contaminants than wintering area or long-range transport.
Climate change threatens the kittiwake – extreme weather and altered prey availability reduce recruitment
Bad weather is bad news, also for the red-listed kittiwake. New research reveals that wind conditions combined with the availability of different prey species are determinants of chick production in this seabird.
A warmer ocean is bad news for eiders
Higher ocean temperatures in the north are not good for everyone. For common eiders, the warming causes decreasing populations.
