New papers on the Honey buzzard migration!

Agostini N., Chiatante G., Gustin M., Cento M., Von Hardenberg J., Dell'Omo G., Panuccio M. 2021. Local and regional wind patterns affect spring migration magnitude, flyways and flocking of European honey-buzzards Pernis apivorus at the Strait of Messina. Ardeola 78: 373-390.                           This study investigated the influence of wind conditions on the migration patterns of European honey-buzzards across the Strait of Messina. Simultaneous observations occurred at four watchpoints, three on the Sicilian side and one on the continental boundary (Calabrian side). The magnitude of honey buzzards spring migration at the Strait is strongly affected by wind patterns in the Sicilian Channel the previous day. By interpreting migratory behaviour both at local and regional scales, this work can help to plan more efficient monitoring of honey buzzard and improving the efficiency of anti-poaching efforts.
