Primeira sessão do MAI na Quinta da Atalaya (94 aves anilhadas e 24 recapturas de 14 espécies). Monitorizar as populações de aves invernantes para aplicar programas de conservação eficazes. We need to monitor bird populations through time in order to conserve them effectively.
O mês de Setembro terminou com uma boa captura de aves limícolas nas lagoas do EVOA, norte do estuário do Tejo. Capturámos 84 aves de 10 espécies e destas foram marcadas com anilhas coloridas 57 aves. September ended with a good catch of shorebirds in the lagoons of EVOA, Tagus estuary, Portugal. We caught 84 birds from 10 species and of these 57 birds were marked with colour rings.
We recorded one of the worst breeding seasons on the last 14 years. Sharp declining on the number of breeding birds and nests, including Kentish plovers, Black-winged stilts and Little terns. Unfortunately, the lack of management in most of this area is one of the strongest factors affecting negatively these species.
Catching spoonbill chicks in an amazing mix breeding colony, Sado estuary. We colour ringed 26 spoonbills, 4 grey herons and the first glossy ibis in Portugal! Plus deployed GSM tags in 2 spoonbills. Great work team!!! @CESAM_Univ @eco_flyway @ECOTOP_UC @ICNF

We ringed 57 new birds and caught 30 retraps with 9 geolocators!!
