I (Liza) was out on the cliffs with researchers from Napier and Northumbria Universities this morning. The folk from Northumbria were scanning the cliffs with a laser to produce a very accurate map of the cliff faces and kittiwake nest sites. The folk from Napier were introducing this year's research student, Jenna, to the site, and we were discussing suitable areas to install sound recording devices to monitor changes in seabird vocalizations in response to various factors. Isn't modern technology wonderful - except when the mist comes in, the laser didn't like that at all!
