- John Calladine, Chris Hewson, Ros Green
Monday, November 30, 2020 - 19:00 to 20:45
Session 1 of the BTO Conference includes talks on Short-eared Owls by John Calladine, Chris Hewson talking about Cuckoos and Ros Green will present new insights gained through tracking Shelduck. The talk will be held online using Zoom.
19:00 Tracking Short-eared Owls - John Calladine
Unusual amongst predatory birds, the numbers of breeding Short-eared Owls have declined markedly over recent decades. The talk will describe recent attempts to better understand what has arguably been one of the least understood birds in Britain and explore how that information could be used to secure their future. Included will be new and some very surprising findings on habitat use, movements and behaviour from ongoing satellite telemetry studies.
19:30 Cuckoos, conservation and the costs of migration - Chris Hewson
In this talk Chris will describe some of the extraordinary findings from our collaborative project tracking Cuckoos from their breeding grounds in Mongolia.
20:00 There and back again: A Shelduck tale - Ros Green
BTO research Ecologist Ros Green will present some fascinating new insights gained through tracking Shelduck.
