Finally, stable carbon (foraging habitat) and nitrogen (trophic level) isotopes were analysed in the same body feathers. Our first results confirm elevated exposure to Hg and PFASs in Baltic nestlings and lower exposure in Norway and Iceland. Notable Hg hotspots are located along the Swedish coast and in Finnish Lapland, while only the central Swedish and Finnish Baltic seem to be hotspots for PFASs. We did not observe a significant overall relationship between trophic level and contaminant exposure, which supports the notion of locally elevated environmental background levels. Multiple regression models investigating the simultaneous effects of individual contaminant exposure, age, short-term food ingestion, foraging habitat and trophic level indicate that the latter two stable isotope based dietary descriptors also show relationships with BCCPs indicative for liver, kidney and blood metabolism. Moreover, short-term diet ingestion (recorded crop content) as well as an individual{\textquoteright}s age influences these same BCCPs as well as a range of elements.
