Summary
Abstract: Previous exploration and ornithology in the Rauer Group are reviewed. Estimates of the nesting populations of southern fulmars and Antarctic petrels are compared with censuses conducted in 1983/84 and 1984/85. Population estimates varied considerably between years, and within the same year between different observers. To remedy this situation the three islands with sympatric breeding populations ...

Quality Dataset is as complete as practicable for the 1983/84 and 1984/85 seasons. During the main period of the study (December 1983-February 1985), Antarctic petrels and southern fulmars were censused on Filla, Hop and Buchan Islands, and the southern face of McNab Island. Reference Breeding Groups (RGB's) were established by marking out roughly rectangular areas using natural feathers as boundaries ... View entire text
