Beijing Swift Animation

This is a very cool animation showing the locations of the Beijing Swifts fitted with loggers during 2014-2015.  Each coloured dot is an individual Swift from the Summer Palace.  The gaps in coverage are due to “noisy” data during the spring and autumn equinoxes.  Credit to Lyndon Kearsley.

  2. This animation is really amazing! I’ve enjoyed watching it a few times. And even more amazing is these Swift’s migration. What a distance! Really good information. Love that the dates are included. Thanks for sharing this.
