Why has the number of black-tailed godwits resting in Spain during spring migration been falling in recent years and the number resting in Portugal been increasing? Mo Verhoeven from the University of Groningen and colleagues have discovered that young black-tailed godwits are effecting this change in migratory pattern. Almost all adult birds stick to their regular route as they migrate to the Netherlands: either along the Portuguese coast or via inland Spain. The research is published today in Biology Letters.
