Baltic Sea Motus Network (#223)
Short name: Baltic
Short description: Array of receivers on the Swedish and Finnish coast of the Baltic Sea. Coordinated by Ottenby Bird Observatory.
Description: Under development. The Baltic Sea is a barrier for migratory birds and bats breeding or passing through Scandinavia. In this project we are building a network of towers in Sweden and Finland, providing an infrastructure to study migration and movements. For birds, the focus has so far been on stopover ecology of Eurasian nightjars and yellow-browed warblers in autumn, but the system can be used for many other species. Another important part of the project is to study the migration of bats between Finland and Sweden.
