BRC at IBOC2019
 

We just returned home from the 3rd International Bird Observatory Conference (IBOC) in Eilat. It was a very successfull get together of people from bird observatories across the globe to share knowledge and experiences. As BRC we are very thankful to the organizers of the IBOC2019 for helping us with part of the funding needed to come to Eilat and for giving us considerable speaking time to present our work in Batumi. Besides topics as project management, count philosophy and data management and our recently submitted paper to IBIS about the relevance of ageing, we are very proud that one of our first Georgian counters, Aslan Bolkvadze, presented the problems of illegal hunting in the bottleneck.
