Bird migration

This new theme, dedicated to bird migration in general (except White Stork and Black Stork, which have own themes on our forum: White Stork - http://www.bocianyzprzygodzic.pun.pl/vi … php?id=59, Black Stork -http://www.bocianyzprzygodzic.pun.pl/viewforum.php?id=60), is an idea of Brit from Germany, thanks!

You can give here every interesting link, own observation or information about migrating birds.

Re: Bird migration

From the  Estonian forum Looduskalender I would like to post  the link to the Migration map there, where you not only get informations about the seven tagged (with a GPS sender) black storks, ( I posted in the black stork theme), but also about  osprey ‘Erika’, the greater spotted eagles Tőnn and Iti , and the three Eurasian cranes Rasina, Juula,  Ahja, which are breeding in Estonia and now are on their way, or even arrived at their winter habitat. Please go to the Migration map and look yourself, where are now all these lovely birds

For example:

October 5 2010 Greater Spotted Eagle Tőnn is still in Germany

The first days of October in Near East were very suitable for migrants, for example during 2nd of October about 20 000 lesser spotted eagles passed Jordan Valley, as informed our colleague Ohad Hatzofe from Israel.

Tőnn was yesterday late evening still in Germany, nearly 3km north of down Emsdetten. But the locations are not exact (Argos), therefore not put on map. Bird watchers in Netherlands, Luxemburg and Belgium should be observant...
The osprey Erika arrived to wintering site at Ar Rahad river, Sudan.

Re: Bird migration

Satellite telemetry of Eleonora’s Falcon  Falco eleonorae

I am very happy that Brit (Moderator from forum in Papendorf) joined us. I am also glad that Pawel, following Brit's idea, opened this new theme about bird migration.

Let me present something interesting from my country - Greece. This is satellite telemetry of Eleonora’s Falcon migration.
Greece hosts around 85% of global breeding population of the Eleonora’s Falcon, meaning that more than 12,000 pairs breed every year in Greece.

Four Eleonora’s Falcons from Greece (2 adults and 2 juveniles) were equipped with satellite transmitters in their colony on the island of Andros.
So, we have a chance for tracking of Eleonora’s Falcons migration from Greece to their wintering areas in SE Africa and Madagascar, in order to investigate the migration routes followed by the birds.

The four birds we called: Voreas, Iris, Notos and Zephyr (nice and pure Greek).

Here you can see some photos and read more in English: http://www.ornithologiki.gr/page_cn.php?tID=2562

The map with migration you can see here: http://www.ornithologiki.gr/page_cn.php?tID=2563

12.10.2010 Cranes on migration map

You probably already noticed, that here are new birds on migration map since mid September, the Cranes. We can follow the migration routes of three juvenile Cranes from eastern Estonia. Yesterday, 11 of Oct, we got last data, but these are correct only for Rasina, but weak for other two (Ahja and Juula). So the last locations for Ahja and Juula are from almost same area in eastern Hungary (their wintering site?), but Rasina's last location shows its migration direction to more east.
Research about Cranes is made by scientists of Estonian University of Life Sciences and that team started just to participate on VII Crane conference in Stralsund. Maybe there will shown also current map...

Re: Bird migration

14.10.2010 Greater Spotted Eagle Tőnn is arriving to Spain


The internal navigation system ("GPS") of Tőnn works well. Inspite he uses completely new autumn migration route, the destination (El Hondo wetland) seems surely fixed and most suitable track is followed. Today morning Tőnn was only 14km of Spanish border and probably today he arrives to the wintering country. Last location is not completely exact, but more-less the same place. If we get more data during today, then location will corrected.

Re: Bird migration

Observations on bird migration over the Bosphorus - March 2011

After making contact with the Turkish ornithologists, we received from a colleague - Ömral Ünsal ÖZKOÇ from the faculty of Marmara Bilogii Üniversitesi (also Istanbul Birdwatching Society member) - a summary of counts of birds migrating over the Bosphorus during March 2011 (see table below).

The table shows summarized counting from several points of observation for the period from 1 to 31 March. Unfortunately, the names of birds are listed in Turkish only (using of auto-translator may be helpful). But for simplicity, please note, that the name "Sahin" refers to Common Buzzard and the name "Leylek" means White Stork.

As you can see, the highest number (after the White Storks) of birds flying over the Bosphorus this spring, were Buzzards.
According to data of Istanbul Birdwatching Society, in March 2011, a total of 54 960 Buzzards flew over the Bosporus.

The project of observation of birds migrating over the Bosphorus is coordinated by: Hürmüz Yenice, and Kerem Ergün Bacak Ali Boyla.
Precise maps for March and more information are available at: http://ikgt.org/?page_id=7

Re: Bird migration

The internet wildlife magazine "Wildlife Extra.com" published in October 2011 a report about a "record-breaking kingfisher" from Poland, which was caught and released by members of Landguard Bird Observatory, part of the Orford Ness Nature Reserve on the Suffolk coast of England.  The bird's journey is believed to be one of the longest migrations (in excess of 1,000 kilometres) among the Kingfishers in the UK ringing database, and is also exceptional in that it originated at the most easterly point from the UK to date.

For more information, please refer to the link below:
http://www.wildlifeextra.com/go/news/ki … on.html#cr
"Suffolk kingfisher migrated from Poland"

The long-distance-flying kingfisher also caught the attention of BBC News Suffolk, who ran the following item on 24 October 2011, complete with a photograph of the bird together with the ring which allowed the observatory volunteers to establish its "nationality" and ringing scheme (Gdańsk, Poland):

Re: Bird migration

Bewick's Swans and other wildfowl species online from WWT Slimbridge, UK
 
Bewick's Swans Cygnus columbianus bewickii overwintering at the famous Wetland and Wildfowl Trust station in Slimbridge, England, UK, have been found to be making a stopover at Przygodzice Ponds, Poland - another famous place for nature lovers, where White Stork Ciconia ciconia nest camera www.bociany.ec.pl has been active since 2006!
 
It was only relatively recently that numbers of these swans were reported to stop in the southern part of the Wielkopolska region in Poland on their way to Siberia. The first four confirmed readings of their rings were recorded in the spring of 1997 at Przygodzice Ponds. All four birds (three of them were a family) had been ringed at Slimbridge. During their spring migrations, they have been found to conquer the distance of more than 1,300 kilometres (in straight line, “as the swan flies”) between Slimbridge and Przygodzice in just 2 or 3 days. Previously, during their autumn flights from Siberia, on 25th October 1996 the same family was also recorded (and filmed by the BBC) on Estonian lake Peipsi, near the Russian border.
 
Since then, Bewick's swan families and individual birds have been observed on Przygodzice Ponds with increasing regularity during their autumn and spring migrations between the Siberian tundra and wetlands in Western Europe, in UK and Netherlands mainly (subsequently there was no proof that observed birds were actually from Slimbridge, although some were from the Russian WWT expedition). For example, last Sunday (19th November 2011) one group of Bewick's Swans (9 adults and two young) was seen at Przygodzice Ponds by Paweł T. Dolata from South Wielkopolska Group of the Polish Society for the Protection of Birds (OTOP, BirdLife International's partner in Poland).
 
It is worth noting that the Slimbridge swans are the subject of long-standing extensive scientific research by  WWT staff. The birds are not only ringed but also identified by their unique black-and-yellow beak markings, different in each individual. In addition, they are given individual names. The patron of the Wetland and Wildfowl Trust is Queen Elizabeth the II, and the Trust has the Prince of Wales as its president.

Re: Bird migration

An interesting article summing up this season's bird migration as observed in the British Isles can be found on:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/natureuk/201 … -a-r.shtml

The authors point out, among other things, that more avian visitors from Eastern Europe and western areas of Russia are soon expected as the temperatures in those regions continue to drop.  The birds we can expect to arrive should include Bewick's swan, pochard, goldeneye and smew, and also more geese and thrushes.

Re: Bird migration

Important information for television viewers who have access to the BBC1 channel, directly or through satellite coverage, and also perhaps those able to access BBC1 through the internet television service: 
www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
Tomorrow, on  Thursday 29th December, BBC1 begins a new wildlife series in its nature programmes, entitled EARTHFLIGHT.  It is scheduled to be shown at 8:00 pm GMT.


According to introductory notes in the Radio Times magazine,  the six programmes, each lasting one hour, will concentrate almost exclusively on wild bird flight, each covering birds from a different continent.  The main narrative in the first programme of the series will cover the migratory journey of  five million snow geese travelling from the Gulf of Mexico to their Arctic breeding grounds (some of them becoming prey to bald eagles on the way) and passing some of North America's natural and man-made landmarks such as Monument Valley, the Mississippi River, and New York's Statue of Liberty. The programme's cameras have apparently captured "some of the most incredible wild behaviour ever filmed".

It looks as if the series, described as "stunning", "astonishing", and "another natural history epic", will become a must-see for anyone interested in wild birds, their flight and the amazing phenomenon of bird migration.

So don't forget to "tune in" to  TV's BBC1 channel at 8:00 tomorrow evening!

Re: Bird migration

Cranes getting confused over their migration routes?

A rare Asian hooded crane, Grus monacha, of a species that breeds in south-central and south-eastern Siberia and possibly Mongolia, and normally overwinters in southern Japan, South Korea, and China, has apparently taken "a wrong turn" in its winter migration this year and arrived at the Hiwassee Refuge in southeastern Tennessee, USA, well outside its normal range.  It appeared at the refuge in mid-December and joined some sandhill cranes there, creating instant sensation among birdwatchers at the centre.  It is not thought likely that the bird could have escaped from captivity, as it has no bands or other markings.
Melinda Welton, conservation chair for the Tennessee Ornithological Society and a bird migration researcher, commented that people were "coming in from all over the country to see this bird. Curious watchers have come from 26 states and from two countries, including Russia."   A local birdwatcher added that this is the highlight of the century for birders in southeast Tennessee.
For more information, see
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/wildli … -turn.html

A reader of the above article commented that a rare Sandhill crane Grus canadensis was observed in Scotland this autumn before continuing along the English coast to East Anglia for a few days, and then flying off in the direction of central Iberian peninsula, where it was last reported. It was only the fourth- or fifth-ever record of this species in the British Isles.

The series concentrates almost exclusively on wild bird flight, including migratory travels. Each programme covers birds from a different continent.  Last week's programme, which was really worth watching for its astounding photography and many amazing, rare and spectacular wildlife shots and scenes, focussed on North America. Today it is Africa.  Preview notes are a bit unclear, but seem to indicate that, among other birds, such as vultures, cape gannets, and flamingoes, tonight's programme may also feature storks. A must for our forum members and guests, then!

Happy viewing!

Re: Bird migration

Hurricane Katia responsible for throwing North American birds off migration routes as far as south-west Britain

According to the RSPB and the Cornwall Birding Association, last autumn and this winter birdwatchers in Cornwall have been observing an exceptional number of wild birds from North America that have been blown off course in their migratory travels by Hurricane Katia which  hit the East Coast of the US in early autumn. Unfortunately, a number of birds arrived exhausted after the lengthy and difficult journey, and it is feared that some will not survive.

The 18 native North American species reported included wading birds such as greater yellowlegs, lesser yellowlegs, buff breasted sandpiper and spotted sandpiper, and also small birds like the scarlet tanager and red-eyed vireo. These species normally migrate from North to South America. Some are occasionally seen as vagrants in England, but this season their numbers have been exceptional. The greater yellowlegs and  the scarlet tanager have both only ever been recorded in Cornwall on one other occasion.

Re: Bird migration

What Did the Cuckoo Do in the Congo?  Satellite tracking project may get the common cuckoo to reveal its migration secrets

As reported in the BIRDWATCH magazine of 7th January 2012, a BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) satellite tracking project  is expected to give ornithologists new exciting and important insights into the behaviour, habits and routes of migrating common cuckoos.  Five British-hatched male birds, named Chris, Martin, Lyster, Kasper and Clement, are being followed as they make their winter homes in the West African forests of the Congo basin.

The common cuckoo is now one of Britain's fastest-declining summer visitors, its numbers having decreased dramatically - by more than 50 percent - over the last 25 years. Little is known about its life outside its summer breeding sites in Britain and continental Europe. It is hoped that new information about its migration routes and habits may lead to better understanding of the reasons for the decline of this elusive bird, which in turn could contribute to its conservation.

As they continue in their migration journey, each individually named bird can be followed on the BTO's website, using regularly updated maps.
