I am coordinating Yelkouan Seharwater Project that aims at determining seasonal and daily movements of Yelkouan Shearwater in the Bosphorus and Dardanelles in Turkey. Since March 2010 we have been performing systematic coastal counts in the Bosphorus and this year we've started to perform systematic counts in Dardanelles also ESAS surveys in the Marmara Sea. The project also aims to identify candidate marine important bird areas in the region.
