The radar is situated at Napkor, 200 km ENE from Budapest, and it can detect the birds in a 25-100 km range. Intensity of bird echoes was high at sunrise and early afternoon. In 25 km range, the intensity of the echoes was high at sunset because of intensive migration of passerine birds. The average direction was northeast (42°), and its daily value varied between 33°-59° during the study. The changing of the direction might come from the change in the composition of migration species. -from Author
