I do not understand the whole problem. Have too little background know. Just hope that the birds that are presented get their backpacks. :nod:
Thank you for the work in the background :2thumbsup:

The delay is because Leetchi insist on various documents of registration, to make sure that they send the funds to the right place.
I have only today been able to send them the final document.
Maybe in 2 or 3 days, we shall have good news.

Happier news today!
The funds from the Leetchi Money Pot are on the way to Kotkaklubi. If all goes according to plan, it should be in their bank account tomorrow. The amount transferred is 3,058.65 euros.

Haven't we done well? :loveshower:

:hi: Dear Stork Friends

If I get Urmas right in his summary then Kotaklubi has to return the transmitter which was borrowed for Oru. But since Oru is on his way they have to buy a new one

Perhaps we can start a fund raising as we did last year in order to help?

One thing I don't understand is the price of the transmitters. "Ours" were 1000 € each. Obviously they are cheaper in Poland and/or Romania. And why is it that so many cranes have transmitters? Are they smaller and cheaper than the ones that are needed for Black Storks? :shake:

Aquiline,
cranes have so many transmitters because there is (or was)the national crane surveillance project by Estonian University of Life Sciences.
