Arctic 'no safe harbour' for breeding birds
The Arctic is no longer the safe haven it once was for nesting birds, a new scientific report warns.
Having nests raided by predators is a bigger threat for birds flocking to breed than in the past, it shows.
This raises the risk of extinction for birds on Arctic shores, say researchers.
They point to a link with climate change, which may be changing the behaviour and habitat of animals, such as foxes, which steal eggs.
Prof Tamás Székely of the Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath, UK, described the findings as "alarming".
He said fewer offspring were being produced in some bird species and these populations in future might not be sustainable.
