High flying Black-tailed Godwits –

One of the most common questions I am asked during any talk I give is ‘how high do shorebirds fly?’ Well, I would hedge my bets and say ‘anywhere from 100 to 5,000ms depending on conditions’. Well now I can answer in a similar vein but with more authority, due to this excellent paper led by Nathan Senner. The study was funded by the Dutch scientific agency, NWO (Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek/Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) in a grant to Theunis Piersma called “shorebirds in space.”

And it’s up to 6,000m!

Turnover estimation of Red Knots at Luannan

Please find attached a new paper in Ecology & Evolution showing the magnificent importance of the Luannan Coast in Bohai Bay (for piersmai Red Knots). The paper is the spin-off of a postdoc by Dr Tamar Lok at the French mecca of demographic analysis in Montpellier, where she, together with her supervisors Pradel and Gimenez, developed a new and sophisticated analytic technique, which has been put to work on the data on Red Knots collected by the GFN team in the Luannan/Nanpu area. I think we may count ourselves fortunate that the Red Knot data were used as the illustration. T Piersma
