The recovery in the Souss-Massa region remains precarious because the population is concentrated in a few places where adverse changes are possible, however, it could provide opportunities for natural extension of the range to formerly occupied sites further north in Morocco.
Habitat selection, ranging behaviour and diet of the stone curlew (Burhinus oedicnemus) in southern England
Distribution, habitat use and selection, ranging behaviour, diet and food supply of the stone curlew Burhinus oedicnemus were studied in a small, fragmented population at the north-western edge of…
One Health approach to use of veterinary pharmaceuticals
Strengthening of current procedures and addition of a more proactive, holistic, One Health approach applicable to all VPs are recommended.
The race to prevent the extinction of South Asian vultures
It may be some years before diclofenac is removed from the vultures' food supply, and captive populations of three vulture species have been established to provide sources of birds for future reintroduction programmes.
The status and recent breeding performance of the critically endangered Northern Bald Ibis Geronticus eremita population on the Atlantic coast of Morocco
It is suggested that coastal fogs in this region may buffer the adverse impacts of low rainfall and may in part account for the year-round residency of the birds.
The Woodlark Lullula arborea in Britain: population trends, distribution and habitat occupancy
This paper reports on the 1986 Woodlark survey – the only national survey of the species conducted to date – and reviews subsequent changes in British Woodlark populations. In 1986, the British…
Modelling habitat selection and distribution of the critically endangered Jerdon's courser Rhinoptilus bitorquatus in scrub jungle: an application of a new tracking method
Summary 1 Jerdon's courser Rhinoptilus bitorquatus is a nocturnally active cursorial bird that is only known to occur in a small area of scrub jungle in Andhra Pradesh, India, and is listed as…

It is speculated that selection of highly suitable wild foraging habitat such as mint crops or fields covered in manure allows the Northern Bald Ibis to raise more fledglings than exclusive reliance on supplementary food provided at the breeding station.

It is suggested that woodlarks prefer bare ground and short vegetation because at these sites they can forage by walking for invertebrate food for their young there and because the preferred vegetation is mixed intimately with much other unsuitable tall vegetation, breeding woodlark need a large home range.
High variation reduces the value of feather stable isotope ratios in identifying new wintering areas for aquatic warblers Acrocephalus paludicola in West Africa
The large within-site variability of feather isotope ratios of a habitat specialist species like the aquatic warbler indicates that using feathers of known origin by trying to establish isotopic gradients across sub-Saharan West Africa may not be an efficient tool in identifying wintering areas of Palaearctic African migrants.
