Thierry Boulinier is studying eider ducks on Storholmen Next year we will start a new research program on avian diseases (www.birdhealth.nl). This year we have sampled a few eiderducks. We are taking a little bit of blood and make a swap with a bit of cotton through the cloaca and the mouth. We don't expect to find any dangerous virusses, but the dynamics of low-pathogenic virusses might help us to understand interactions between virus and host.
