Study sites were on a transect along the north‐south migratory direction. Three groups of birds migrating either during day, evening or night in the northern part of the Western desert in Egypt were identified. The maximum of day and night groups occurred later the further south the study sites were. Based on the distance between sites and the timing of peak migration, birds were flying at an estimated ground speed of about 20 m/s. The maximum of the evening group was at about 21:00 h at all sites. The three groups were classified according to three different strategies of migration across the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert: (1) the day group of birds performed a non‐stop flight across the sea and at least the northern part of the desert; [2] the night group performed an intermittent migratory strategy with stopover at the coast of Egypt to continue migration the next evening; (3) the evening group birds were also intermittent migratory fliers, but they stopped somewhere in the desert after a continuous flight across the sea and part of the desert. About 20% of all migrants are involved in non‐stop migration and 80% in intermittent migration with stopover at the coast (70%) or with stopover in the desert (10%). It is argued that any species of small passerine has the option to use any of the three strategies.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Friedrich, Wolfgang</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Schmidl, Dieter</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Partecke, Jesko</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Schmidl, Dieter</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-11-04T11:14:01Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Heine, Georg</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Friedrich, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Heine, Georg</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2008</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Biebach, Herbert</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Biebach, Herbert</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Partecke, Jesko</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Strategies of passerine migration across the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert : a radar study</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-11-04T11:14:01Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
