Thanks to everyone who participated in the MLSG Satellite Symposium at EOU 2015 in Badajoz! You can find a full summary of the symposium on the Meetings page, as well as one-line summaries of the speed talks.

Satellite telemetry in ornithology is a forum which started in October 2001 and has 518 members now (August 2015). There have been up to 93 messages in a month.

On the 27th – 30th May 2015 more than 90 ornithologists, conservation and agronomy scientists gathered together for the 1st European Whinchat Symposium in Helmbrechts, Germany. In 42 contributions, experts on the Whinchat presented scientific findings from 18 countries.

At our December ExCo meeting, our Treasurer Rien van Wijk surprised us with some sample MLSG merchandise: a plain white coffee mug and a heat-sensitive black-to-white coffee mug that shows the MLSG logo when you pour in a hot drink!

This meeting is the essence of what the MSLG is trying to do. We are aiming to connect research and conservation across the flyway – to facilitate the research and to inform the people who can then make changes to conserve migrant birds. A detailed schedule of the day can be seen here.
