The Seabird Group announces that its next conference on the theme of North Atlantic Seabird Populations will be held at Aberdeen University, Scotland over the weekend of 2-4 April 2004. This will coincide with the launch of the book reporting the results of the Seabird 2000 count of British and Irish seabirds. It is hoped to integrate this informally with the International Waterbird Conference to be held in Edinburgh 3-8 April 2004. Scotland will certainly be the place to be in early April 2004. Further details and calls for papers will be made in mid-2003 and posted on the group’s website
