Hello from North scotland

Hi I'm a new member and have read quite a few of the posts. I am interested in surveying seabirds including ringing them (fitting small metal rings to their legs) its great fun and the rib will be fantastic for this. More than happy to answer any queries about seabirds around the UK and Ireland as well.

Welcome fella

Will sea eagles ever dive from a height and go under for a fish or is it mostly only gannets that do that ?

Hi,

Mostly gannets that will go in from a height, sea eagles will go in to take fish near to the surface http://www.snh.org.uk/publications/o...ish/seaeagles/ ... there is some pretty cool stuff being done looking at movements of gannets check out Gannets don’t eat off each other’s plates - University of Leeds
