As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

How seabirds are affected by climate change

May 28, 2015

Collaboration between ecologists and climate researchers has generated fascinating new insight into how seabirds are affected by climate change.

Until recently, ecologists used a specific set of methods to study the relationship between animals and climate change, one of which is the NAO index (North Atlantic Oscillation), which measures differences in air pressure between Portugal and Iceland.
If no correlation was found here, some ecologists refuted that climate change is causing the observed changes.
