A radar was installed at Lista Lighthouse last week. Lista Bird Observatory (LBO) has the main responsibility for ground-truthing of the radar tracks at Lista.
A new radar project is underway!

VisAviS will use the latest radar technology to map migratory routes across Norway and adjacent seas.

Lista Fuglestasjon (BirdLife Norway) will, in collaboration with the Norwegian Institute for Natural Sciences (NINA), carry out a project called VisAviS, which will run from 2022 to 2026. NINA is responsible for the project founded by The Reasearch Council of Norway.

VisAviS will use the latest radar technology to map bird migration routes over Norway and adjacent seas. A radar was installed at Lista Lighthouse last week and the location of the radar has been carefully chosen considering the overview of the bird migration.

Lista Bird Observatory (LBO) has the main responsibility for ground-truthing of the radar tracks at Lista. The station will register the species and the number of birds that pass by and log these. The data is then entered into the radar system so that the movements detected by the radar (the radar track) are linked with the observations.

The fieldwork will be carried out in 2023 and 2024. The last two years of the program will be used for data analysis, reporting and publication. The project will also use the long data series from LBO (observations and ringing of birds for 34 years). This will make it possible to better understand and use the data obtained from the radar, especially with a focus on phenology. We are very pleased to be part of this project, which gives even more meaning and weight to the work at the bird station.

The project aims to map the main migration routes in time and space will thus be important to reduce conflicts with wildlife, as well as ensure a more environmentally friendly location of wind-power plants. In addition, it is absolutely necessary to ensure a sufficient quality of impact assessments before development, it is explained on the NINA website.
