Wheatears on Lundy: the impact of rat eradication
By Tony Taylor
Abstract Data on the breeding population of Northern Wheatears Oenanthe oenanthe on Lundy, Devon, are presented, including recent surveys of the whole island and a Retrapping Adults for Survival (RAS) project. The results suggest a marked increase in breeding Wheatears since the successful rat eradication project on the island, in 2003/04. Potential reasons for these results are discussed.
