This report covers seabird monitoring work on Canna during 2002. Three visits were made to Canna during 2002 to count and ring seabirds, monitor breeding success and collect food samples. Counts showed that many seabird species are undergoing major declines on Canna. This trend continued in 2002 with shag, herring gull, great black-backed gull and mew gull all showing substantial declines in numbers. Fulmar numbers stabilised, but at a low level. Only kittiwake numbers remain high, with a small increase occurring in 2002. Great skua bred on the island for the first time in 2002.
