Project Tringa glareola 2000

Share this page on Facebook
The Wood Sandpiper is a common migrant at inland wetlands of Europe and Africa, yet its movements have not been comprehensively studied. Project "Tringa glareola 2000", which is coordinated by WRG KULING, is aimed to focus attention of wader observers on migration dynamics, phenology, migration routes, migration strategy, winter quarters, and moult of the Wood Sandpiper. Teams from 26 countries in the years 1997-2005 conducted ringing, colour-marking and counts of migrant Wood Sandpipers, providing current and archive data about its movements between Europe and Africa. The project team met during 4 workshops held in Poland. In 2006-2007 the data is being analysed by an international team of authors, with the aim to present a monograph on Wood Sandpiper migrations within the Wader Studies series.
