Raymond Klaassen and colleagues have been awarded the 2014 Watson Raptor Prize for their paper in the Journal tilted 'When and where does mortality occur in migratory birds? Direct evidence from long-term satellite tracking of raptors'. 83: 176–184. The paper reported important new information on where and when satellite-tagged raptors died on migration and demonstrated just how hazardous migration is for these birds.
The runner up prize also went to a paper in the Journal and was awarded to Christiane Trierweiler et al. for their publication, 'A Palaearctic migratory raptor species tracks shifting prey availability within its wintering range in the Sahel', 82: 107–120.
Congratulations to Raymond, Christiane and their co-authors.
