We used radio telemetry to track individual migratory flights of several species of songbirds on the Faroe Islands, far west of their normal migration route. Birds with expected easterly and south-easterly migration direction departed westwards out over the Atlantic Ocean, indicating that these birds are actively flying in the “wrong” direction and that their occurrence is not caused by wind drift. This is in contrast to the apparently normal south-westerly to easterly departure directions in birds expected to migrate south or southwest.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-02-19T14:34:21Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:alternative>Orientierung bei verdrifteten Vögeln auf den Faröer Inseln im Atlantik</dcterms:alternative> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Wikelski, Martin</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Kristensen, Mikkel Willemoes</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Thorup, Kasper</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-02-19T14:34:21Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Ortvad, Troels Eske</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Wikelski, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Thorup, Kasper</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Kristensen, Mikkel Willemoes</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Holland, Richard A.</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Orientation of vagrant birds on the Faroe Islands in the Atlantic Ocean</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Holland, Richard A.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Rabøl, Jørgen</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:creator>Rabøl, Jørgen</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2012</dcterms:issued> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
