In our first video and question this week we have a first for Burhou! In the video you will get 3 very quick glimpses of something that has never been seen before by our cameras or surveyors whilst on Burhou. But can you tell me what it is? (Hint: it is not a Storm Petrel).
Having trained as a graphic designer and illustrator Filip began a career change in 2013. He gained skills in applied ecology and land management on the Great Fen Project in Cambridgeshire before moving to BirdLife Malta to work in wildlife crime mitigation, injured bird care and campaigning.
As research assistant for the Malta Seabird Project Filip worked with gulls, shearwaters and storm-petrels while developing an understanding of seabird ecology.
He is tasked with writing the next five-year management strategy for the Alderney West Coast and Burhou Islands Ramsar Site, and leading the seabird season for 2016.
