Of interest to Seabirders...

Driven by the Petrels

Hadoram Shirihai and Vincent Bretagnolle have been conducting research into Magnificent and Vanuatu Petrels on the Banks Islands and surrounding waters as part of continuing work on the Tubenoses Project (Albatrosses, petrels and shearwaters of the world: a handbook to their taxonomy, identification, ecology and conservation and Field Guide to the Seabirds of the World).

Details and new information on these birds will be published in the ornithological press in due course.

Meanwhile, to get a 'taster' of the remarkable work carried out by this team, check out the video.
