Birds migrate to the arctic tundra

The Arctic is no longer the safe haven for nesting birds, warns a new scientific report.

Nests plundered by predators pose a greater threat to breeding birds than they did in the past, as it shows.

This increases the risk of extinction of birds on the Arctic coast, researchers say.

They point to a link with climate change that can change the behavior and habitat of animals, such as foxes stealing eggs.
