Behavioural changes of top predators related to tidal-stream energy extraction – using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to measure animal distribution

Use of tidal flow areas by seabirds and the potential interactions with tidal stream renewable energy

Quantification of seabird use of tidal environments: Novel methods to address potential biases in vantage point survey data
