BOU2017 – Poster – High mobility of Red-throated Divers revealed by satellite telemetry



Background and research questions

  • Knowledge about Red-throated Diver ecology and movements is limited.
  • It is established, however, that this species is highly sensitive to human
    disturbances, but poor knowledge hinders conservation and management
  • Study objective: fill knowledge gaps about Red-throated Diver origin,
    movement patterns, habitat use and overlap with offshore wind farms.
  • Aim of this presentation: characterize the mobility and space utilisation of
    divers during the annual cycle .
