Results of gender determination for 2017 divers are online & in 2017 breeding areas in Siberia and Svalbard are utilised

This year the genetic gender determination for divers tagged in march 2017 showed a little more balanced result with 5 females and 3 males but again still more females than males. As before information on the sex of each individual is given in short bird profiles next to the tracking map.

Furthermore, since beginning of July divers are back in their breeding areas! Most of the birds tagged in 2017 headed to breeding areas in Siberia but two birds flew to the south of Svalbard, thus within this study a new potential breeding spot can be added to the used sites in Siberia, Greenland and Norway.
