Fair Isle Seabird Monitoring Scheme: Report to Joint Nature Conservation Committee of Eighth Season's Work 1993

The 1993 season was overall a good one for the island's seabirds, some populations were down on previous years, notably Black Guillemot (according to the whole Island census), but most species had above average breeding success rates and several had their most productive season yet recorded Sande. Is appeared to be readily available during the early part of the season although there were indications that they became scarcer from around mid-July.
