ARDEA accepts article on Batumi raptor migration

The Dutch ornithological journal Ardea has accepted our manuscript South West Georgia: an important bottleneck for raptor migration during autumn. The article documents the 2008-2009 surveys, which established the east Black Sea bottleneck as on of the most important in the world. It also includes a section on phenology of raptor migration in Batumi, and discusses the potential of the site for the detection of large-scale population trends.
