European Bird Migration Changing Due Climate Change

The BBC reported that waterfowl have changed their migration patterns over the last 30 years due to changes in climate. Finnish researchers report some birds have delayed migration by as much as a month. The UK’s Wildfowl and Wetlands trust report some bird populations have decreased as birds do not fly as far south as in the past. The UK has seen a 75% decrease in the number of white-fronted geese in the last decade.  Read more at BBC Nature: Autumn’s birds delay migration.
