    Thumbs up More details on Shearwaters from the Med.

    Hi there,

    with my colleague who loves the Provence birding passion with Pierre-Andre
    and Professor Berlin who is based in Uppsala at Linnaeus University in
    Uppsala top genetic research centre for avian genetics in Sweden.
    PDF attached with more details.
