Lineage Data were collected by temporarily attaching PathTrack Nano Fix GPS loggers to the mantle feathers of sooty shearwaters breeding on Kidney Island using Tesa tape. In total 25 GPS loggers were deployed and 20 were retrieved 3 to 11 days later. Birds were caught by hand or net at their burrows. The logger set to attempt to record a location every 15 or 40 minutes. The breeding status of the tracked birds was confirmed using a burrow camera.
