As the transformation of natural habitats into urban environments increases, some species, such as hedgehogs, are able to adapt and thrive. Six hedgehogs, three males and three females, were tagged with radio–transmitters and tracked for three nights in the University of Alicante campus to study the effect of sex on their home range size, distance...

Capsule: Diet analysis revealed high lead exposure for Greater Spotted Eagles Clanga clanga wintering in southeast Spain. Aims: To describe the diet composition of the endangered Greater Spotted Eagle in a wintering area located in southeast Spain, and determine lead ammunition exposure through analysis of regurgitated pellets and prey remains. M...

El creciente incremento de la población mundial y la rápida transformación de espacios naturales en terreno urbano, ha tenido como consecuencia una gran desconexión entre el ser humano y la naturaleza. Actualmente, la pérdida de hábitat es la principal causa de extinción de un gran número de especies a nivel mundial. En ese aspecto, las ciudades ti...

Winter quarters have an important role on individual fitness and survival rates when food availability become scarce at the breeding sites. During harsh winter, good knowledge of the area, location of resources and retention of good quality territories can become critical to ensure survival of the winter bird population, having even an effect on se...

Mountain environments are amongst the most threatened environments by global warming, with already evident effects (e.g. glacier melting). Studying how species are adapting to these new conditions and how they may take advantage of new opportunities is fundamental to understand the global process of climate change. Passerine birds are the most abun...

The study of parasites in wildlife is a useful tool to know the health status of populations and the pathologies by which they may be affected. The objective of this work is to obtain information about the diversity and prevalence of endoparasites in two protected species present in the Valencian Community, Spain: the European hedgehog (Erinaceus e...

Knowledge of behavior and ecology of migratory raptors along their winter areas is essential to design conservation strategies at global scale. Disturbances suffered in winter quarters could compromise the survival of raptor populations in their breeding areas, especially in threatened species. One of these hazards could be the lead intoxication, a...

In the last decades, the European populations of southern grey shrike (Lanius meridionalis) has experimented a negative trend, probably related to climatic fluctuations and anthropic changes in their breeding habitat. Few data are available on the breeding biology for this species in semi-arid Mediterranean landscapes. The aim of this study was to...

El objetivo del presente trabajo es describir el uso de despensas por el búho real (Bubo bubo) en el sureste ibérico. Para ello se estudió la riqueza, abundancia y la biomasa de presas en las despensas de un total de 213 nidos en el sur de Alicante en un periodo de 12 años desde 2005 hasta 2017. De este modo se registraron un total de 408 presas ap...

Uno de los principales objetivos del anillamiento científico de aves es el estudio de la supervivencia de los individuos y el estudio de las causas de mortalidad. Estos parámetros son básicos para conocer la evolución de las poblaciones y gestionar mejor tanto las amenazas como las acciones de conservación. El área de Sierra Escalona y la Dehesa de...

Vivimos en una época de gran incertidumbre para la conservación de la naturaleza. Hoy en día, lejos de desaparecer, las presiones por parte de determinados sectores sociales hacia los espacios naturales y su fauna, son evidentes y están aumentando en varios frentes. La urbanización de las zonas litorales y prelitorales, la contaminación, la presión...

La distribución del erizo europeo es amplia y se extiende a lo largo del continente europeo, donde suele asociarse a ambientes urbanos y periurbanos. Existen investigaciones sobre su área de campeo en climas templados, en hábitats con cierto grado de antropización; sin embargo, apenas existen estudios sobre este tema en poblaciones mediterráneas, c...

During the largest ever influx of Collared Flycatchers to the Spanish Mediterranean coast, an interesting flycatcher was found at Nature Reserves of Llobregat Delta, Barcelona. The bird presented some odd features (such as broken white collar and extensive white on outer tail feather), likely suggesting a hybrid Collared x Pied. However, after cons...

Winter quarters have an important role on individual fitness. Good knowledge of the area, location of resources and retention of good quality territories can become critical to ensure survival of a winter bird population. Different winter strategies has been found in groups of siskins in different wintering quarters of Europe1. In this study we examine structural differences in wintering groups of Siskins (Spinus spinus), a typically nomadic species, through different winter seasons in a wintering quarter at southeastern Spain, and different individual winter strategies in the same wintering group.
