This video from England is about a common redstart.
This blog reported already about the count this month of migratory shorebirds in west Europe and west Africa.
More inland in Africa, people count migratory birds as well.
In this program, there is participation from Burkina Faso NATURAMA, Mauritania, Nigeria Conservation Foundation (NCF) – Nigeria; and Senegal. And also from European countries where the migratory birds are in summer.
This morning, Vroege Vogels radio in the Netherlands reported about it. Where do Eurasian migratory birds like common redstart and spotted flycatcher spend their African winters?
It turns out they do so overwhelmingly in just about ten tree species, all in the Acacia genus. And much more so in older, taller trees than in small, young trees.
This research result means there should be more conservation of acacia trees, especially tall, older ones.
