Research

My main interest is the at-sea behaviour of seabirds, with a particular focus on the Manx Shearwater. Using a variety of data-loggers attached to shearwaters at several breeding colonies on offshore islands around the UK, we gather extensive and detailed information on movement, salt-water immersion, light, pressure, temperature, etc. I will use a range of computational methods to analyse these data and make inferences about birds' behaviour at-sea, where direct observation over a sustained period is near impossible. Using this behavioural information and data gathered during colony monitoring during the breeding season, I will explore how shearwaters strategically adjust their foraging efforts throughout the annual cycle, and how this impacts on reproductive success.
