Survey of the Island of Pianosa – Scopoli’s shearwater colony

27.09.2014 – A survey was carried out of the Pianosa Scopoli’s shearwater colony at Punta Brigantina to check the nest contents before the young shearwaters flew the nest. Nest monitoring has highlighted the fact that the successful reproduction of shearwater pairs stands at around 20%. The nesting sites in which surviving chicks were found were located in the only cavern treated with rat poison during the reproductive season.
