Stopover studies have concentrated so far mostly on mechanisms regulating the temporal organisation on the day-to-day level. Taking advantage of the small and isolated island of Helgoland in the North Sea, we investigated the stopover and departure behaviour of a nocturnal migrant by using radio telemetry. Special attention was paid particularly to nocturnal behaviour, their departure times within the night, and departure directions. Here, we show that Northern Wheatears, Oenanthe oenanthe… CONTINUE READING
