Seabird migration and foraging
Tracking different seabirds in different places
In this project we study foraging movements and migration in a number of seabird species, most of them breeding in the Baltic Sea, like Caspian terns, lesser and greater black-backed gulls, herring and common gulls. We have also studied common guillemots and razorbills, as well as wandering albatrosses (Southern Ocean). The current project is run in close collaboration with BirdLife Sweden.
We use different types of tracking technology including, GPS, GSM and satellite to record movements of individual birds in the wild.
We welcome young scientists, especially at the postdoc level, to join the group. For more information, please, contact Susanne Åkesson for opportunities.
