New paper out now

A new paper has been published on Acrocephalus. The paper relies on the migration of Lesser Kestrels in the Balkan area. This analysis shows that this species migrates on a broader front during spring than in autumn while philopatry rates are higher for adults, while juvenile birds disperse more often and at longer distances, up to 974 km away. This research was made by a team of Greek ornithologist with a contribution from MEDRAPTORS activities.
