Report published: Black-tailed Godwit Demographic Project – spring migration of Black-tailed Godwits in Iberia 2017

Jos Hooijmeijer reports:

In January and February 2017, our teams were present again in the Iberian ricefields to look for colour-ringed Black-tailed Godwits. And with great success: despite the lower total numbers, we never saw so many birds with colour rings.

More than 3842 resightings were done of 1187 individual birds; and that just of godwits from our own scheme…… That is an incredible 72% of our colour-ringed population that was alive at that time!

Some of you might have received re-sightings from your own scheme during this trip.

Please have a look at the report for an impression of the field work and the situation last winter. We hope to go back again in 2018; it is addictive you know…..
