    Abstract

    The establishment of a new higher predator monitoring location on the north coast of South Georgia is described. Preliminary results obtained from the 2008/09 season are presented. Although this is the first year of monitoring, breeding success of predators monitored in the Cumberland Bay area in 2008/09 was low, consistent with monitoring at Bird Island and coinciding with low krill abundance observed at South Georgia in early 2009.
