Seabird foraging ranges as a preliminary tool for identifying candidate Marine Protected Areas
Abstract There is a growing need to identify Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) for marine species. For seabirds, MPAs include those near breeding colonies, offshore foraging areas, inshore habitats forExpand

Impacts of sudden winter habitat loss on the body condition and survival of redshank Tringa totanus
Summary 1 Recent theoretical modelling has provided important insights into how habitat loss may affect local populations through impacts on individual fitness (survival, body condition,Expand

Modelling flight heights of marine birds to more accurately assess collision risk with offshore wind turbines
Summary 1. The number of offshore wind farms is rapidly increasing as they are a critical part of many countries’ renewable energy strategies. Quantifying the likely impacts of these developments onExpand

Nest orientation and hatching success in the tree pipit Anthus trivialis
Many open-nesting bird species orient their nests relative to surrounding vegetation to avoid adverse environmental conditions. In eastern England, tree pipit Anthus trivialis nests predominantlyExpand

Impacts of Man-Made Landscape Features on Numbers of Estuarine Waterbirds at Low Tide
Abstract The potential impact of human disturbance on wintering waterbirds using intertidal mudflats was considered by relating their numbers to the presence of nearby footpaths, roads, railroads,Expand

Effects on shorebird numbers of disturbance, the loss of a roost site and its replacement by an artificial island at Hartlepool, Cleveland
Abstract Hartlepool West Harbour contains nationally important high water roosts for wintering shorebirds, including purple sandpipers Calidris maritima , turnstones Arenaria interpres and knotsExpand

Modelling flight heights of Lesser Black-backed Gulls and Great Skuas from GPS: a Bayesian approach
Summary Wind energy generation is increasing globally, and associated environmental impacts must be considered. The risk of seabirds colliding with offshore wind turbines is influenced by flightExpand

Impacts of Disturbance from Construction Work on the Densities and Feeding Behavior of Waterbirds Using the Intertidal Mudflats of Cardiff Bay, UK
Abstract The impact of disturbance from construction work around Cardiff Bay, south Wales, on the densities and feeding behavior of seven waterbird species was studied over an 11-year period.Expand

Test of a behavior-based individual-based model: response of shorebird mortality to habitat loss.
In behavior-based individual-based models (IBMs), demographic functions are emergent properties of the model and are not built into the model structure itself, as is the case with the more widelyExpand

Functional diversity across space and time: trends in wader communities on British estuaries
Aim: British estuarine ecosystems support large populations of protected migratory waders. Understanding how wader communities vary spatially and how they may be changing temporally can greatlyExpand
