The analysis of the bird migration study from autumn 2011 and spring 2012 at Besh Barmag is still going on and produced the first article:

"The Importance of Besh Barmag Bottleneck (Azerbaijan) for Eurasian Migrant Birds"
Acta Ornithologica 48(2):151-164. 2013.

The bottleneck is important for several species occuring in high numbers according to their world or flyway population. Dalmatian Pelican and Little Bustard are just two of them.
