Capsule Reverse migration in autumn does not occur to the same degree in all species of migrants, but is related to migratory direction. [] Key Method Methods Multiple regression analysis on the number of individuals occurring as reverse migrants observed in northwest European countries.

Weather conditions affect spring and autumn migration of Siberian leaf warblers
TLDR
It is argued that birds during spring migration would continue migration under sub-optimal conditions, as a result of strong competition to arrive earliest on their breeding grounds, as one of the effects of weather elements on the migration of four species of leaf warblers.
Origins and characteristics of Nearctic landbirds in Britain and Ireland in autumn: A statistical analysis
TLDR
The seasonal characteristics, high explanatory power of the Fallout list and over-representation of probable over-ocean migrants in the standard regressions all support suggestions that many Nearctic vagrants in UK-IR originate in flights off southeast USA and are displaced downwind across the North Atlantic.
Factors affecting the distribution and abundance of autumn vagrant New World warblers in northwestern California and southern Oregon
TLDR
This study used multiple linear regression to model the occurrence of 28 rare warbler species in autumn in northern California and southern Oregon as a function of migration distance, continental population size, distance, and bearing to both closest breeding population and breeding population center.
Phenology of Passerine bird migration in the Danube Delta, Romania
Abstract The Palearctic-African bird migration system has fascinated ornithologists for decades and is one of the most well-known. However, there is strong spatial variation in the level of
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.
Testing the Effect of Migratory Restlessness on the Occurrence of Vagrant Continental Passerines in Japan
Abstract Many vagrant passerines from the Western Palearctic have been documented in Japan. In the present study, I tested the following two hypotheses: (1) the vagrancy of continental passerines
Reverse and cross migration of Western Honey Buzzard Pernis apivorus at the Apuane Alps watch-site (Tuscany)
Abstract – The aim of this study is to analyse the migration flow of the Western Honey Buzzard Pernis apivorus observed on the western slopes of the Apuane Alps (Capriglia, Pietrasanta, Lucca,
Migration patterns of Hoopoe Upupa epops and Wryneck Jynx torquilla: an analysis of European ring recoveries
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)
The relevance of environmental conditions for departure decision changes en route in migrating geese.
TLDR
A proportional hazards model is used to identify local environmental factors, which a long-distance migrant, the Pink-footed Goose, uses for departure decisions on multiple sites along its spring flyway from Denmark via Norway to Svalbard, and suggests that the birds switch on a "migratory program" in their wintering grounds.
The Influence of Population Growth and Wind on Vagrancy in a North American Passerine
TLDR
It is found that vagrancy was predominantly explained by the growing breeding population size as indexed by BBS, and significant effects of annual production of young within the breeding range, as well as three measures of air circulation across North America.

DO PASSERINE MIGRANTS CAPTURED AT AN INLAND SITE PERFORM TEMPORARY REVERSEMIGRATION IN AUTUMN
Ringing recoveries from 18 different passerine species captured at an inland ringing site in south Sweden (Kvismare Bird Observatory) were analysed with respect to direction and distance of migration
MIGRATORY BEHAVIOR AND POPULATION GROWTH OF BLACKCAPS WINTERING IN BRITAIN UK AND IRELAND SOME HYPOTHESES
Over the past several decades the number of Blackcaps (Sylvia atricapilla) wintering in Britain and Ireland has increased from a few birds to a substantial wintering population involving thousands of
Vagrants as the Expanding Fringe of a Growing Population
Models of invasions have revealed the importance of rare, long-distance movement to the rate of population spread (Kot et al. 1996, Veit and Lewis 1996, Lewis 1997). For example, the rate at which
Flight behaviour of nocturnally migrating birds in coastal areas - crossing or coasting
TLDR
Optimal migratory behaviour appears to be an adjustable compromise between risk avoidance and straight flight depending on endogenous and environmental conditions.
The orientation system and migration pattern of long-distance migrants: conflict between model predictions and observed patterns
TLDR
It is proposed that first-time migrants might be able to use landscape topography on a regional scale in combination with corrections of directional mistakes/wind displacements to account for the exceptionally precise migratory routes shown in this study.
Modelling migration: the clock-and-compass model can explain the distribution of ringing recoveries
TLDR
It is suggested that at least young pied flycatchers, and perhaps night-migrating passerines in general, use a simple clock-and-compass strategy to reach their wintering area, and all the prerequisites (a compass and an internal clock) that they need to orient during migration seem to be known at present.
Interaction of body condition and magnetic orientation in autumn migrating robins, Erithacus rubecula
TLDR
The influence of different fat loads on the magnetic orientation of the same robins was investigated, and the amount of stored fat reserves could be used to predict whether an individual will select a seasonally appropriate southerly direction in relation to the geomagnetic field or engage in reverse migration.
Factors influencing the clutch size, number of broods and annual fecundity of North American and European land birds
TLDR
Birds breeding at high latitudes had, on average, the same annual fecundity as species breeding at low latitudes (within North America and Europe).
Can clock-and-compass explain the distribution of ringing recoveries of pied flycatchers?
Birds have a fascinating capability of finding their way on long-distance flights, and the orientation systems of migrating birds have been the subject of considerable research. Of special interest
