Like humans, some birds can spend years learning and exploring before developing more settled habits.
Gannets are refusing to travel into another colony's territory to find food, affecting their breeding, according to new Deakin University research which offers insight into how the seabirds are responding to climate change.
Researchers at Plymouth Marine Laboratory and the University of Exeter have combined two innovative technologies to probe the mystery of how seabirds locate food hotspots across vast tracts of ocean.
Fishing vessels have a far bigger ecological footprint than previously thought, according to research which tracked the movement and behaviour of seabirds using GPS devices.
Scientists from the University of Exeter and the RSPB have captured incredible footage of what it's like to fly with the UK's largest seabird.
Dr Christos Ioannou at the University of Bristol has been awarded a five year research fellowship by NERC for the study of predator-prey relationships, using robotic prey to lure predatory fish.
Colonies of gannets maintain vast exclusive fishing ranges despite doing nothing to defend their territory from rival colonies, scientists have discovered.
Images from cameras attached to the tails of gannets have revealed their appetite for fishing boat discards, soon to face a ban under reforms to the EU Common Fisheries Policy.
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have discovered that proposed offshore renewable energy developments in the English Channel have the potential to affect the foraging behaviour of northern gannets from Alderney in ...
New research into seabirds highlights the need for marine conservation to consider the different behaviours of males and females in the species it aims to protect.
