Swans Monitored on Their Way to Iceland

Fifty swans that are currently headed for Iceland are being tracked with the aid of GPS monitors on their backs. The project, “Whooper Swans,” is organized by the UK Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and followed on the BBC website.

According to Fréttabladid, the purpose with the project is to learn more about the swan’s migration between their wintering grounds in Britain and Ireland and their breeding grounds in Iceland.

The movements of each swan can be followed on the project’s website and users can learn, for example, that the swan Rocky rested on Monday night approximately 30 kilometers west of Glasgow, Scotland.
