We are pleased to announce our latest publication from work carried out on Puffin Island:

Collins P, Green JA, Dodd SG, Shaw P & Halsey LG (2014) Predation of black-legged kittiwake chicks Rissa tridactyla by a peregrine falcon Falco peregrinus: insights from time-lapse cameras. Wilson Journal of Ornithology 126: 158-161

Which can be accessed here: http://www.bioone.org/doi/abs/10.1676/13-141.1

The paper documents nocturnal predation of Kittiwake chicks by a Peregrine Falcon as recorded by time-lapse cameras in the 2013 field season. The paper also highlights how valuable time-lapse cameras can be for defining nest fate and recording rare events.
