Aeroecology studies the movement of birds, bats, and insects in the lower atmosphere, often during their migration journey. Weather radars provide a unique opportunity to study continuously migratory movements at a continental scale. In this study, we tailored a geostatistical model to interpolate nocturnal bird migration intensity at high resolution (0.2 lat.–lon.–15 min.) using the European weather radar network. Within the area covered, we estimate more than 120 million birds simultaneously in flight. Local estimations can be easily visualized and retrieved from a dedicated interactive website. This work paves the way for real-time estimation of bird densities, which would be an invaluable asset for ecological and conservation purposes. View this paper.
