Project Tringa glareola 2000
The Wood Sandpiper (Tringa glareola) is a common migrant at inland wetlands of Europe and Africa, yet prior to this IWSG Project, its movements had not been comprehensively studied.
Project “Tringa glareola 2000”, was coordinated by WRG KULING, and aimed to focus attention of wader observers on the 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 four workshops held in Poland. In 2006–07 the data were being analysed by an international team of authors, with the aim to present a monograph on Wood Sandpiper migrations within the Wader Studies series.
