The foraging ecology of great black-backed gulls and their potential effects on puffin populations

PhD Aims:

  • To explore the foraging ecology of great black-backed gulls at a spatial, temporal, and dietary level using a combination of different techniques
  • Part of this will include studying whether neighbouring seabird populations are being affected through predation
