Webcams in the nests of the Scopoli’s shearwater

This year, once again, the electronic eye of the webcam has followed the Scopoli’s shearwater sitting on their eggs in a cavern on the Island of Pianosa. This new technology allows researchers to direct the cameras using remote controls to record every detail. The chicks will soon hatch and be reared by their parents until they fly the nest in October. In the meantime, preparations are underway on the island for the eradication of the Black Rat, which, unfortunately, as recorded in the past, preys on the newborn chicks. You can watch the shearwaters by clicking on the link below:
