Lineage During deployment and recovery of GPS and gelocation loggers tissue samples were obatained from sooty shearwaters breeding on Kidney Island. Approx. 0.5 ml of blood was taken from a blood vessel in the web of the foot, with half stored in 75% ethanol and half dried. A 1 cm section was clipped from the base of primary 6 and three mantle feathers were clipped. These were stored in paper envelopes. Regurgitates and faeces were collected opportunistically. The former were frozen and the latter stored in 95% ethanol. Sample size were: 51 x blood; 88 x feathers; 7 x sooty reguritates; 21 x faeces. Samples will be used to determine sex, diet and stable isotope loading.
