Past Project Sightings

To read about historic sightings from our past projects simply use the navigation menu on the left.


WLO Sightings
On the Portsmouth - Bilbao route our casual sighting reports were collated by the Wildlife Officer who travelled on every trip. The sightings mainly came from the WLO, but were also collected from passengers on the ship. We are very grateful to all passengers who passed sightings (including bird records) to the Wildlife Officer over the years when they were onboard.


Survey Sightings
Our survey data is collected only by our researchers on the Bridge of the ship whilst conducting an effort-related survey.


Both types of reports will be listed here. As the sampling methods differ however, it is likely that the sightings will also differ.
