Return to Corvo!

Hello! My name is Rosemary Sigger and I have returned to Corvo this week after completing my internship here over the summer. I am excited to be working with SPEA again, this time as an RSPB intern, on their translocation programme for Cory’s shearwater chicks.

The objective of the project is to investigate whether rearing the chicks in artificial nests will encourage them to return to breed there in the future. The chicks will be hand-fed every day until they fledge from the nests, which are found in Corvo’s Biological Reserve.
