New paper on great snipe migration

Until the publication of ground breaking new data from migrating great snipes in 2011, little was known about the annual flights of this red-listed species.

The three tracks from the 2011-paper suggested a remarkable migratory behaviour including long and fast overland non-stop flights.

In a new study, Åke Lindström et al. presents the migration pattern of Swedish male great snipes, based on 19 individuals tracked by light-level geolocators in four different years.
