'Seabird Populations of Britain and Ireland', by P. Ian Mitchell, Stephen Newton, Norman Ratcliffe & Tim E. Dunn (eds.), was published in 2004 by T & AD Poyser, an imprint of A&C Black. It summarises the results of Seabird 2000 – a census of all seabirds breeding in Britain and Ireland between 1998 and 2002. The documents provided here are extracts from the publication.

Available are copies of the distribution maps and tables of regional population estimates derived from the Seabird 2000 results, for the 25 species included in the Seabird 2000 census. The population size and distribution of each species is summarised at the following scales: colony, administrative area and country. The results are compared with two earlier breeding seabird censuses, allowing analyses of population trends over 30 years. Results are also considered in an international context. Also provided is the executive summary from the publication.
