The remarkable foraging behaviour of northern gannets: a tale of flexibility, consistency and constraint. Keith Hamer is a Reader in Ecology at the University of Leeds. His research is particularly concerned with how wild animals use natural resources, especially food resources. This work includes a wide range of species, from leaf-litter arthropods to birds, in environments ranging from tropical rain forests to sub-Arctic oceans. In this talk, he will present results of more than 10 years of research studying the at-sea movements, activity patterns and foraging strategies of gannets breeding at the Bass Rock and elsewhere around the UK. His results highlight the amazing adaptability and ingenuity of these birds but also send a word of warning about their future prospects in the face of continuing environmental change.
