abstract Migratory shorebirds are exposed to a wide range of pathogens along their migratory flyways, but their capacity to acquire or spread pathogens beyond endemic areas is poorly known. We focused on the spillover and acquisition of mosquito-borne pathogens such as haemosporidians and West Nile virus (WNV) on key-staging Iberian wetlands during different seasons. We screened seven shorebird species (447 individuals), and detected low haemosporidian prevalence (0.6 %). Furthermore, no WNV infections could be detected, though 6.2 % revealed antibodies against flaviviruses. Although Iberian wetlands congregate numerous shorebirds of different species and origins, the potential introduction of foreign pathogens is not a common event.

funding agency and grant number European Fund for Economic and Regional Development (FEDER) through the Program Operational Factors of Competitiveness (COMPETE); National Funds through the Portuguese Foundation of Science and Technology [PTDC/BIA-BDE/64063/2006, FCOMP-01-0124-FEDER-007053]; Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation; Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation [CGL2010-15734/BOS]
funding text We are grateful to the Farlington Ringing Group, Pedro Geraldes, Filipe Martinho, Joao Guilherme, and many other volunteers for their essential field assistance during bird capture sessions. The Portuguese Instituto para a Conservacao da Natureza e das Florestas provided official permits for bird capturing and sampling. Sandra Antunes, Joana Morais, and Rita Ventim helped during laboratory analysis. This is a contribution from the Moncloa Campus of International Excellence of the Complutense and the Polytechnic Universities of Madrid (through J.P.T.). This project and S.P. were financed by the European Fund for Economic and Regional Development (FEDER) through the Program Operational Factors of Competitiveness (COMPETE) and National Funds through the Portuguese Foundation of Science and Technology (PTDC/BIA-BDE/64063/2006, FCOMP-01-0124-FEDER-007053). J.A.A. was supported by (Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation) and J.P.T. was supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (Grant CGL2010-15734/BOS). The experiments comply with the current laws of the country in which they were performed.
