Abstract. In some conservation situations, there is a need for estimates of numbers of seabirds migrating past a specific site, such as sites of proposed offshore wind farms. Migration counts from points strategically located on the coast can be a reliable and effective method of reaching this goal. We propose a consistent and statistically robust method for estimating such numbers by generalized additive modeling of the numbers passing during periods when counts are interrupted. This procedure… CONTINUE READING
