Fun acronym! I'm curious how clumped the different are into discrete multi-species colonies. My dissertation work might be able to provide an interesting comparison (we should chat when you're back!)

12/30 of month! Day 12: Foundational paper I know I'm cheating... BUT "Seabird Islands: Ecology, Invasion, and Restoration" by Mulder et al. 2011 exposed me to the big picture of critical interactions of with other island biota, and vice versa.

This year rough weather is the main issue and makes it hard to get any fieldwork done - not to mention how much the seabirds are struggling - last night we had 25 m/s - today we have only 22 m/s.

It's been a very busy couple of days for the team, both on Lewis and along the Aberdeenshire coast. Spectacular views in both, though rather different numbers of between the two areas.

Lovely confirmation earlier when I arrived into Graciosa airport - this is definitely the right island! Can't wait to meet my first Monteiro's Petrel after making the final boat trip out to the islet tomorrow (fingers crossed)

Widespread success yesterday for , lots of geolocators deployed and retrieved. On Colonsay, we deployed all of our TDR-GLS double-tagged birds in one morning. Feeling pretty chuffed with that! Thanks to David Jardine for a great field day
