Whimbrels in Iceland with Camilo Carneiro


Camilo Carniero is a biologist, ecologist and postdoc researcher at the South Iceland Research Centre, after completing a PhD in Biology and Ecology of Global Change; University of Aveiro.

His masters thesis was the "Breeding parameters, diet and growth of the Red Heron (Ardea purpurea) in Salreu, Aveiro" and his PhD thesis was about whimbrels in Iceland, titled "Bridging from the arctic to the tropics: implications of long-distance migration to individual fitness."

I spoke with Camilo about his long-term observations of the Whimbrels in Iceland, and what it was like to work in a location that many people wish they could visit.
