We are very proud for the blue tit team who just handed in their dissertations. Well done!
Kirsty Bond studied the factors causing female blue tits to change nest box between breeding attempts. Rowan Stanforth assessed the application of a photographic technique to study the composition of nests. Tom Oldridge studied the function of moss in nests of blue tits. Austin Morin measured the effects that temperature has on the building behaviour and reproductive output of blue tits.
We are equally proud and happy for the hummingbird duo!
Catherine Cannell studied whether wild hummingbirds change their foraging routes in response to a decrease in sucrose quality.
Catherine Lo studied relative quantity discrimination in wild hummingbirds.
