Even though is not always known, there are many more species of seabirds apart from seagulls! Some of the species that can be observed in the Western Ligurian Sea are resident year-round, while others are migratory species. Some of these are Scopoli’s shearwaters (Calonectris diomedea), Yelkouan or Mediterranean shearwater (Puffinus yelkouan), northern gannets (Morus bassanus), sandwich terns (Thalasseus sandvicensis), just to cite a few. The presence in this area is only partly described and only historical data are available, with some exceptions. To supply this lack of data, during our boat-based cetacean monitoring, we collect also data on seabirds’ presence and their behaviour (foraging, travelling, stationary. A lot of observations have been collected up to this day! These include also sightings of less common species such as Atlantic puffin (Fratercula arctica) and the long-tailed jaeger (Stercorarius longicaudus), of which we recorded the second-ever sighting for the Ligurian region and the first ever for the Western part of it.
