New paper out now!

Loop migration of Greek Honey Buzzards
A new paper from Medraptors is just out now. It is the first systematic study on Honey Buzzard migration along the Balkans-Crete-Libya flyway. The results of this research show that individuals breeding in Greece migrate through the island of Antikhytira in autumn but not during spring migration. In the paper, two different hypothesis are discussed, both suggest a loop migration strategy as an explanation of their migratory behaviour.
