Weather effects on bird migration are well studied among soaring raptors moving between migratory bottlenecks, but little is known about the importance of weather on the migratory movements of smaller species such as the European bee-eater (Merops apiaster). The European bee-eater is a long-distance migrant known to use both flapping and soaring-gl...

Il Mediterraneo centrale rappresenta una delle principali rotte migratorie utilizzate dagli uccelli che si muovono tra l'Africa e l'Europa (Zalles & Bildstein 2000). In quest'area lo Stretto di Messina rappresenta il luogo in cui convergono il maggior numero di individui in migrazione sia durante la primavera sia durante l'autunno. Lo Stretto diven...

Project
We are carrying on a field research at the Strait of Messina (Southern Italy) using radar equipment and visual observations to collect data on bird migration both during day and night. The migration of birds at this site is relevant in spring as well as during autumn. During the day tens of thousands raptors are observed each season, while during the night the migratory flow of passerines is impressive. We are analysing the Influence of weather, time of the day, flock size and specie-specific differences on the migratory flow of birds.
