The MLSG – Migratory Landbird Study Group – is a network to connect people working on migrant landbirds, whether pure research or their conservation, to facilitate both. Collaboration and communication make a difference – particularly when the solution to understanding and conserving migrants must involve all of us on the flyways working together.
Last November the 15th Pan-African Ornithological Congress took place in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. It was a much anticipated meeting because it had to be postponed for two years due to the pandemic, and for many of us it was the first in-person congress we had attended for some time.
The 14th EOU Congress 2023 will be hosted by the Department of Biology at Lund University, 21-25 August 2023. The department has long been renowned for its ornithological research, for example on bird migration. The congress venue will be AF-borgen, an old student union building in picturesque downtown Lund. With around 100 000 inhabitants, Lund is very much an academic town dominated by the university which has 46 000 students. Lund is an ancient town that was founded in 1020 and its ancient cathedral, dating from 1085, is situated near the congress venue. Lund is also close to many top birding locations, including the world famous Falsterbo.
