Have you ever visited a seabird colony in autumn or winter? Compared to the hustle-bustle during spring and summer, it is very quiet then. No sign of guillemots, kittiwakes and Co., only empty nests remain. Where do all these seabirds go after they have raised their young?
In the MARCIS project we want to understand how seabirds are affected by human stressors in marine areas. To do so, we need to know where they are and how they use their habitat. Since seabirds spend the majority of their life far out at sea, this is no easy task.
How bird-ringing can be used to determine lethal effects of marine stressors.
