Three northern fulmars (Fulmarus glacialis) were tracked with satellite transmitters while they dispersed from a colony at the North East Water polynya in high-arctic Greenland after breeding failure. The longest cumulative distance recorded was 2043 km in 14 days, giving an average daily movement of 143 km, and the maximum distance covered in 1 day was 369 km. The highest effective flight (ground) speed recorded was 25.8 kmh−1, and when corrected for non-linear flight path the ground speeds… CONTINUE READING
