This site is a personal reference to my interests in seabirds (particularly Common Guillemots) on Lundy. As it has grown, I have created links to other seabirds that are mentioned in those papers. One paper led to another so that now I have links to over 480 seabird papers and over 400 authors.

This is very much a work in progress. Any comments, post on Twitter - Grant Sherman.
