NatureScot Research Report 1064 - Cape Wrath SPA - SCM of cliff nesting seabirds 2017
Cape Wrath Special Protection Area (SPA) is an important seabird breeding area which was last counted in 2000. Since then there have been major changes in many seabird populations throughout Scotland. A survey of the SPA qualifying species, northern fulmar, black-legged kittiwake, common guillemot and razorbill, was undertaken in 2017. This report presents the results of the survey to provide up-to-date population estimates of these cliff nesting seabirds at Cape Wrath SPA. Recommendations of methods for future monitoring of Atlantic puffin breeding at Cape Wrath SPA are also included.
