Travelling through a warming world: climate change and migratory species.
Long-distance migrations are among the wonders of the natural world, but this multi- taxon review shows that the characteristics of species that undertake such movements appear to make themExpand

Climate change causes rapid changes in the distribution and site abundance of birds in winter
Detecting coherent signals of climate change is best achieved by conducting expansive, long-term studies. Here, using counts of waders (Charadrii) collected from ca. 3500 sites over 30 years andExpand

Impacts of sudden winter habitat loss on the body condition and survival of redshank Tringa totanus
Summary 1 Recent theoretical modelling has provided important insights into how habitat loss may affect local populations through impacts on individual fitness (survival, body condition,Expand

A guide to the provision of refuges for waders : an analysis of 30 years of ringing data from the Wash, England
1. It has been proposed to establish roost refuges to limit the disturbance to internationally important over-wintering populations of waders on the Wash. 2. Waders have been caught regularly on theExpand

Impacts of Man-Made Landscape Features on Numbers of Estuarine Waterbirds at Low Tide
Abstract The potential impact of human disturbance on wintering waterbirds using intertidal mudflats was considered by relating their numbers to the presence of nearby footpaths, roads, railroads,Expand

Shifting nonbreeding distributions of migratory fauna in relation to climatic change
The distributions of eight out of nine common species of waders (Charadrii) overwintering on UK estuaries have changed in association with recent climate change. These birds represent a highExpand

Evaluating the statistical power of detecting changes in the abundance of seabirds at sea
There has been considerable recent concern about the plight of seabirds globally, as many species have declined substantially. In the UK there are statutory needs to monitor seabirds at sea,Expand

Man-made lagoons and how their attractiveness to waders might be increased by manipulating the biomass of an insect benthos
The benthic invertebrate communities of four man-made brackish (mixo-oligohaline) lagoons were investigated. The communities showed extreme dominance by Chironomidae (98% of the biomass) and wereExpand

Modelling flight heights of Lesser Black-backed Gulls and Great Skuas from GPS: a Bayesian approach
Summary Wind energy generation is increasing globally, and associated environmental impacts must be considered. The risk of seabirds colliding with offshore wind turbines is influenced by flightExpand
