Geese which winter in Britain before flying to the Arctic to breed each summer are changing their migration route in response to climate change, researchers have found.

Scientists studying the habits of barnacle geese, which spend the winter months in large numbers on Britain’s coast, found that the birds were flying further north far into the Arctic Circle each spring to fatten up en route to their Norwegian summer breeding grounds.

The study is one of the first provide solid evidence that animals are adapting their long-established behaviour to cope with the effects of global warming.

The research team, including scientists based at the University of St Andrews, found that the change in migration route is being led by younger birds which have begun to journey some 250km (155 miles) further north than their traditional spring feeding grounds on the Norwegian coast.

Doubled population

Based on an analysis of 45 years of data, birds travelling from the Solway Firth on Scotland’s west coast to breed on the Arctic islands of Svalbard were found to be breaking their journey to feed on freshly-sprouted grass in an area inside the Arctic Circle that prior to global warming would have still been covered in snow.

Global change is a challenge for migratory species because the timing of seasonal migration is important to maximise exploitation of temporarily abundant preys in feeding areas, which, at the same time, are adapting to the warming Earth. Other driving forces are the use of resources like mates or

In their paper published in the journal Nature Climate Change , the group describes their study of the people on the islands of Tubigon, Bohol, Philippines To learn more about possible migration caused by rising ocean levels, the researchers ventured to the islands of Tubigon, Bohol, in the Philippines.

Dr Thomas Oudman, of the School of Biology at the University of St Andrews, said: “It makes sense that the birds went even further north, because where snow used to be very common there at the time of their arrival in Norway, these days it is often freshly-green [grass] there - the most nutritious stage.

“What surprised us is that it is mainly the young geese who have shifted. The youngsters are responding to a trend they could not have experienced during their short life.”

The study, published in the journal Global Change Biology, found that the barnacle goose population heading to Norway has doubled during the last 25 years.

New food source

The amount of grass at the birds’ habitual feeding ground of Helgeland, just south of the Arctic Circle, has remained stable, meaning the birds were in need of a new source of food to sustain their burgeoning numbers.

This appears to have been found by the younger birds in the area further north - called Vesteralen - possibly as a result of the younger geese flying in flocks with their peers rather than their parents. Intriguingly, this knowledge then appears to have been passed on to older birds, many of which have eventually switched to the Vesteralen feeding grounds.

Dr Oudman said: “These patterns point to a complex social system, which enables the geese to rapidly colonise newly available areas.”

A separate study last year found that more than 80 per cent of European birds that migrate over long distances will experience significant increases in the distance and time needed to travel to their breeding grounds.

In the case of the European Bee-eater, the average migration is expected to rise by more than 1,000km (600 miles) and 4.5 days by 2070.
