Hi Rob and Hans,

I am currently working on great skuas in the Faroes, but migration features only very slightly as a part of my thesis. I have not done any logger study, but I have colour ringed a significant number of breeding adults and chicks, but this has given a very low yield.

But I can also see that this is much too late to make any contribution, but I would just like to say that I will certainly like to attend your session during the conference
