The East-Atlantic Flyway connects the Canadian and Russian Arctic, Europe and Africa. We study shorebirds along this Flyway in the key coastal areas, which are the Wadden Sea in Europe and the Banc d’Arguin and Archipelago dos Bijagòs in West Africa.

Since 23 April 2017 the migration of Red Knots and Bar-tailed Godwits wearing ultralight solar-powered satellite transmitters can be followed (live!) at the website of the Royal NIOZ, the Netherlands Institute for Sea Research: www.waddenflyways.nl.
