Details

This report provides a high-level overview of current knowledge of habituation of seabirds to disturbance impacts associated with anthropogenic marine activities in English territorial waters and subsequent habituation to those activities.

The report explores whether habituation is species or activity dependent and informs on the conditions and scales under which disturbance, displacement, habituation and attraction does or does not occur.
