For many bird species, recovery of ringed individuals remains the best source of information about their migrations. In this study, we analyzed the recoveries of ringed European Hoopoe (Upupa epops) and the Eurasian Wryneck (Jynx torquilla) from 1914 to 2005 from all European ringing schemes. The aim was to define general migration directions and to make inferences about the winter quarters, knowing that hardly any recoveries are available from sub-Saharan Africa. For the autumn migration… Expand

Migration and Staging Patterns of the Wryneck (Jynx Torquilla) at Eilat, Israel
TLDR
The wryneck is an unusual representative of Palearctic Picidae in that it is a long-distance migrant, whose populations have declined across Europe in the last century, and Eilat is a very important stopover site for many migratory bird species. Expand
Analysis of Ring Recoveries of European Turtle Doves Streptopelia turtur — Flyways, Migration Timing and Origin Areas of Hunted Birds
Abstract. Knowledge about flyways, breeding and overwintering sites is important for conservation efforts, but little is known about migration patterns and population connectivity of decliningExpand
The status of the Hoopoe (Upupa epops) in Hungary: a review
TLDR
The main conservation issues are agricultural intensification impacting feeding possibilities, lack of nesting cavities and hunting during migration, as well as the nature conservation status of the Hoopoe population breeding in Hungary. Expand
Short‐distance migration of Wrynecks Jynx torquilla from Central European populations
European Wrynecks Jynx torquilla torquilla have generally been considered to be long-distance Palaearctic–African migrants that spend the non-breeding season in Sahelian Africa, where they have beenExpand
Diverse migration strategies in hoopoes (Upupa epops) lead to weak spatial but strong temporal connectivity
TLDR
Investigation of the migration behaviour of hoopoes from four breeding populations across Europe characterised migration routes to and from the breeding grounds, location of non-breeding sites and the timing of key migration events and found temporal connectivity was strong with differences in timing amongst populations, but consistent timing within populations.

CONTRIBUTION TO THE OOLOGY OF THE
In this article I shall present data on the characteristics of the eggs of the Eurasian wryneck, Jynx torquilla, collected in north-western Croatia during the period from 1985 to 2018 using woodExpand
Connectivity in Reed Warblers Acrocephalus scirpaceus Between Breeding Grounds in Europe and Autumn Stopover Sites in Iberia
We determined the degree of connectivity in the Eurasian Reed Warbler Acrocephalus scirpaceus between breeding regions in central and northern Europe and stopover sites in Iberia, during the autumnExpand
Natal origins and timing of migration of two passerine species through the southern Alps: inferences from multiple stable isotopes ( δ 2 H, δ 13 C, δ 15 N, δ 34 S) and ringing data
Understanding spatial linkages between areas used by migratory animals during the annual cycle is fundamental to their conservation. Stable isotope measurements of animal tissues can be a valuableExpand
Insights into the migration of the European Roller from ring recoveries
TLDR
The first international analysis of ring recovery data in the European Roller Coracias garrulus, a long-distance migrant of conservation concern, demonstrates the complementarity of ring recoveries to direct tracking, providing an insight into the migration of juveniles and non-breeding season mortality. Expand
Breeding Dispersal of Eurasian Hoopoes (Upupa epops) within and between Years in Relation to Reproductive Success, Sex, and Age
TLDR
Breeding dispersal patterns suggest that successful conservation of Eurasian Hoopoes requires extended breeding grounds to maintain sustainable populations, and immigration is an important component of this species' population dynamics. Expand

Birds of a feather winter together: migratory connectivity in the Reed Warbler Acrocephalus scirpaceus
TLDR
Investigating migratory connectivity in the Reed Warbler Acrocephalus scirpaceus found remarkable connectivity between breeding and non-breeding grounds and stable isotope analysis confirmed the separation of wintering areas of SW- and SE-migrating populations. Expand
Modelling the winter distribution of a rare and endangered migrant, the Aquatic Warbler Acrocephalus paludicola
TLDR
A novel approach to model the distribution of rarely recorded species, which is based on a combination of presence-only and presence‐absence modelling techniques, generates four progressively more conservative predictions of where the Aquatic Warbler overwinters in Africa. Expand
Movements, winter distribution and activity patterns of Falkland and brown skuas: Insights from loggers and isotopes
TLDR
Stable isotope signatures of brown skua feathers indicated that distributions of tracked birds were typical of most or all of the breeding population, and were consistent from year to year, which was characteristic of species that winter on adjacent continental shelves or off south-west Europe. Expand
Understanding population change in migratory songbirds: long-term and experimental studies of Neotropical migrants in breeding and wintering areas
TLDR
It is shown that to understand changes in abundance of long-distance migrant species requires knowledge of events operating throughout the annual cycle, which presents a challenge to researchers, managers and others concerned with the welfare of these species. Expand
Using stable isotopes to investigate migratory connectivity of the globally threatened aquatic warbler Acrocephalus paludicola
TLDR
The use of stable isotopes provides novel insights into migratory connectivity and migration patterns in this little-known threatened species. Expand
Birds from the Far East in Central Europe: a test of the reverse migration hypothesis
TLDR
The results indicate that the migratory restlessness of species determines whether an East Asian species arrives in Europe, and support the hypothesis that theigratory program determines vagrancy. Expand
