PBMS contribute to UK study on the diet of red kites

Material from the Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme’s tissue archive will be used in a UK-wide study, led by the University of Reading, to investigate the contribution of supplementary/anthropogenic food to the diet of red kites. The PBMS will provide fragments of egg shells, feathers and egg contents, along with supporting provenance data, to the study that will use stable isotope analysis to determine the source of these bird’s diet. This is another example of how the archive generated through the PBMS chemical monitoring programme can be used to address broader ecological studies of these species.
