From 14 till 17 May the first SeabirdSound workshop took place in Liverpool. The workshop focussed on infrasound and avian navigation and is part of the HFSP Project (investigating the role of infrasound in seabird navigation; it combines seabird ecology, physiology, infrasound soundscapes, and movement ecology in a comprehensive framework).
For the workshop, we brought together experts in all of these areas to share expertise and integrate ideas. In particular we were keen to discuss avian navigation in general with a focus on seabirds. By use of keynote presentations and engaging discussions, we developed an integrated framework around the use of infrasound in navigation and developed a begin for a review article around this subject.
