Hi Nutcracker,



Thanks a lot for the explanation, I hadn't been aware of this feeding strategy! Amazing that the gulls can pull off a manoeuvre I'd normally only have expected from specialized...

However, I'm...

Hi Mudman,



I've read about exhausted birds often landing on brightly lit ships in poor weather, so maybe if they ran really low on energy, they would also land on oil rigs out of...

Hi Richard,



Ah, that simplifies things! ;-) I was admittedly thinking of Northern Germany, where you can have Water and Rock Pipits with similar frequency.

Thanks for pointing out their overall...

Hi Diana,



Your point was that 25000 studies can't all be wrong. How exactly did you determine that?

And what exactly is the frequency of the earth's natural magnetic field?

Hi,



Not the best shot, but one of these is preserved at Airbus Finkenwerder:

It appears there two more are preserved, one each in France and in Britain.
