Blomert AM (1992) Why knot Calidris
canutus take medium -sized Macoma balthica when six prey species are available?
Berth occupancy was managed at the port at 605 on Tuesday where a total of eight ships namely C.V Calidris
, C.V Maersk Kinloss, C.V Al-Khor,j M.V Julia Oldendroff, M.V Trans Shanghai, M.V Orion-3, m.T Al-Bum, M.T Sky Ploeg and m.T Black Parl are currently occupying terminals to load/offload containers, coal, canola seeds, soya bean seeds, chemicals, LPG, palm oil and diesel oil, chemicals, LPG respectively during last 24 hours.
The architectonic similarity of Calidris
and Actitis to other birds made it easier to define the limits of the area of interest in our stereological and morphometric assays.
We collected 80 individuals of Calidris
fuscicollis with mist nets (Licence ICMBIO no.
It also was found that, while pursuing dunlins (Calidris
alpina), aerial attacks (refered to as low stealth attacks or flock chases) were used most frequently in hunting these shorebirds that remained close to the ground (Buchanan et al., 1988).
Mae'r aber hon yn bwysig dros ben ar gyfer adar, a rhydwyr yn arbennig - rhai fel pibydd y mawn (Calidris
alpina; dunlin), cornchwiglen (Vanellus vanellus; lapwing), pioden for (Haematopus ostralegus; oystercatcher) a'r gylfinir (Numenius arquata; curlew), a does ryfedd yn y byd fod arlunwyr fel Tunnicliffe a Philip Snow wedi dewis ymgartrefu yma er mwyn cael digon o gyfle i dynnu lluniau'r adar yma.
1996), a decrease in time available for foraging in less suitable sites (as reviewed by Frid & Dill 2002), and we could expect a higher nocturnal activity rate to compensate for this, as has been found for the sanderling Calidris
alba (Burger & Gochfeld 1991) and the snow goose Chen caerulescens atlantica (Belanger & Bedard 1990).We did not observe this in our study, likely because the high available earthworm biomass in meadows (about 1 ton/ha; Granval &Bouche 1993) does not constrain the instantaneous intake rate and easily allows woodcocks to compensate for a loss of diurnal foraging.
