Title of the project

FIELDFARE project

Description

The Migratory Birds Office of the Italian Federation of Hunting frequently bases its work on sustainable hunting (and their institutional approach) on data collected by hunters through important research projects. These projects use diverse scientific methods based on sampling, satellite telemetry and ringing. This makes it possible to implement effective management decisions and to improve the review of bird hunting periods in Europe (Key Concepts document).

Results

4 complete migratory routes, showing that fieldfares go to nest and reproduce at high altitudes. Determined the departure date towards the breeding sites, which helps define the optimal period for hunting without undermining the reproductive potential of the species.
