Skua hats and important tracks


The team on Gough Island have begun retrieving geolocators off skuas. This requires catching them with a hand net. This one tried to get some revenge by landing on Michelle and Alexis' head!

A year of data will now be extracted and processed from each geolocator that has been retrieved. The wintering foraging grounds of these skuas are about to be revealed!
