Expedition Arctic seabirds

9 juni - 15 juli 2016

In June and July 2016, researcher Rob van Bemmelen is on an expedition for his PhD project on migration of three Arctic seabirds: Arctic Skua (Stercorarius parasiticus) Skua (Stercorarius longicaudus) and Red-necked Phalarope (Phalaropus lobatus). He is part of a group of researchers who will monitor these birds for five weeks.

They share their adventures and first results in a blog:
