Bird And Animal Migration

Bird And Animal Migration

  • Although we tend to think of migration as birds flying from one country to another, there are actually many animals who migrate.
  • Wildebeest, for example, undertake a circular migration, roaming the African plains in huge numbers during the dry season in search of fresh grass.
  • However, birds are the record-breakers when it comes to travel. The bar-tailed godwit has the longest recorded non-stop migration, with one individual spending almost ten days travelling from Alaska to New Zealand without a break.

How Birds Find Their Way

How Birds Find Their Way

  • Migration is a costly business – birds need to carry enough fat reserves to power their flight and sustain themselves over the duration of their journey.
  • Getting lost could have disastrous consequences, so birds have developed incredible navigation skills(a natural GPS-like connection with Earth's magnetic fields) to help them fly the shortest and safest routes.
  • Some species have an innate, inherited ability to migrate, which allows them to move to areas independently to enhance their survival.

Europe's Summer Visitors

  • Many birds undertake long-distance migrations to the UK for the summer breeding season.
  • Feeding birds nuts, seeds, and household scraps will help to provide some easily accessible food.
  • Enhancing biodiversity in your garden by creating a wildflower meadow, or taking part in no mow May - an initiative from British conservation charity, Plantlife, asking everyone to "lock up their lawnmowers and let vegetation grow during the month of May" will also be hugely beneficial

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
