Abstract Transporting birds for two to four hours over distances of up to 224 km (140 miles) induced hyperlipacidaemia and hypoglycaemia while the concentration of plasma cholesterol decreased and then increased significantly. These responses were the same in summer and winter. Body temperature was not affected by the experimental conditions. There was a consistent increase in plasma corticosterone which was greater in winter than in summer.
