An Atlas of Movements of Southwest Siberian Waterbirds

This publication is based on eight decades of bird banding and recovery work by Russian scientists, involving more than half a million waterbirds. The basic field data was stored in databases of local Russian research agencies but most data were never disclosed for the wider scientific audience. Due to excellent cooperation between Russian and Dutch scientists the data were analysed and interpreted in 2005, resulting in the current atlas. It provides a significant contribution to the knowledge of migration movements of waterbirds.

Colour Flagging Protocol for Migratory Shorebirds in the East Asian–Australasian Flyway

It is recognised that there is a need to coordinate all colour marking activities for migratory birds throughout the flyway. In this protocol we have attempted to deal only with colour flagging of migratory shorebirds. If the principles embodied here are accepted by all bird banding schemes and researchers, it would then be appropriate to also attempt international coordination of colour banding in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway.
