The observation of birds in migration, and raptors in particular, offers a unique opportunity to watch elusive species and witness from close proximity a large-scale phenomenon common to many mobile species around the globe. In addition, the seasonal counts at the watchpoints provide the possibility to monitor population trends of many species and investigate the causes for eventual fluctuation in their numbers. Students from Italian and foreign Universities have realised their graduation theses analysing data of migrating raptors in collaboration with researchers from our team and from other international organizations.
