Hi all

Three Danish birders witnessed a strong northerly migration of the
Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui) in the Saharan desert 500 km's E of
Agadir, Morocco on the 5 February 2000. Approx. 20 per minute passed a
100 meter front from 1200 to 1300. All individuals were very pale and

Any other migration news?

kind regards
