Stonechat - early spring on its migration

No successful regional or national projects regarding migration routes of birds of Iran already exist. We are working on some aspects of migration routes of birds of Iran specially raptors and songbirds.

These projects are using sub-set of species, and our own procedures in trapping and taking measurements. Contacts between research groups in Europe and Middle East have been occasional, despite the fact that there is a very strong need for cordinated work to identify and to conserve the major stopover sites.
