Influence of environmental factors and energetic value of food on Little Tern Sterna albifrons chick growth and food delivery: Capsule Chick diet and early growth parameters differed between birds breeding on natural (sandy beaches) and alternative (salinas) habitats.

Habitat structure in Mediterranean deciduous oak forests in relation to reproductive success in the Blue Tit Parus caeruleus: Capsule Effects operate during laying and incubation and with less success in breeding territories characterized by a young and immature vegetation structure.

Effects of feeding patterns on body mass loss in moulting Greylag Geese Anser anser: Capsule Body mass loss was mainly affected by daily travel distance between roost site and feeding patches.
Estimating the use of tidal flats by waders: inaccuracies due to the response of birds to the tidal cycle: Capsule Low tide counts may give inaccurate estimates of habitat use; combining low and mid‐tide counts yields better estimates.

Factors influencing the small‐scale distribution of House Sparrows Passer domesticus in a suburban environment: Capsule Suburban House Sparrows prefer gardens with native bushes but show no detectable response to garden insecticide use.
Summer utilization of Oilseed Rape by Reed Buntings Emberiza schoeniclus and other farmland birds: Capsule Oilseed Rape was the preferred breeding season habitat for Reed Buntings on arable farmland and reduced this species' dependence on wet features.

Status of breeding Twite Carduelis flavirostris in the UK: Capsule The first comprehensive estimate of breeding Twite in the UK indicates that there were approximately 10 000 pairs in 1999.

Factors affecting breeding distribution of Storm‐petrels Hydrobates pelagicus in Orkney and Shetland: Capsule The main factors are past and present human activities, especially the introduction of rats to islands.

Diet composition influences annual breeding success of Montagu's Harriers Circus pygargus feeding on diverse prey: Capsule Diet diversity was positively related to nest failure in Montagu's Harriers.

Survival of Gannets Morus bassanus in Britain and Ireland, 1959–2002: Capsule The mean annual survival of adult Gannets was 92% and about 30% of young survived to an age of four years.

Feeding ecology of migrating waders (Charadrii) at sodic‐alkaline pans in the Carpathian Basin: Capsule Waders fed on the most abundant invertebrates: visual foragers preferred nektonic bugs, while tactile foragers had more diverse food preferences.

Observer variation in estimates of Meadow Pipit Anthus pratensis and Skylark Alauda arvensis abundance on moorland: Capsule Counts least susceptible to observer effects were those within 25 m of a transect and the total number along a transect, with observer effects greater for distance sampling.
