Abstract: The aim of this study was to analyse the patterns of autumn migration of Robins Erithacus rubecula in Hungary. Capturing and ringing of birds took place at the bird ringing stations of BirdLife Hungary in Tömörd, Sumony, Ócsa, Izsák, and Szalonna between the 13th of August and the 27th of October, 2004. During this period 3671 individuals were captured and 553 were recaptured at the five study sites. In September–October, the birds migrating across geographically more distant study sites differed from each other the most. They came from various northern areas. The mean of the stored fat of the ringed birds in October was the smallest in the wooded areas of Szalonna, although the increase of fat of the recaptured birds was the biggest here. These study sites, which differ in vegetation, may play different role in migration. We conclude that the stopover area and the fall migration period do affect the wing-length, body mass and fat store of migratory Robins and that there is interactive effect of both ringing site and month.

Key words: Erithacus rubecula, autumn migration, wing-length, body mass, fat reserves
