    A new technology to monitor the activity of wild birds is being tested on Skomer Island
    A new technology to monitor the activity of wild birds is being tested on Skomer Island, just off the coast of Pembroke.

    The project will run for 14 months in which time researchers are hoping to gather vital information about changing behaviours, feeding trends and patterns associated with caring for the young.

    The monitoring system will film nesting birds and then analyse the images to work out what the birds are doing, how long they at the colony caring for young and how long foraging. The computer system attached to this will then be able to identify the changing elements in each scene. This will lead them to determine changes in behaviour over the 14 months.

    Experts say that guillemots, found on Skomer Island, can give us an insight into the bird wolds evolution and seasonal changes. This could provide researchers with revolutionary knowledge about the bird species.
