December 2

KARL
very probably his "winter break" already began :headroll:

"locality Keleilik or Keilak (resp. border area Southern Kordofan - West Kordofan, Sudan): Oct. 13 - Nov. 15
"winter pause" from Nov. 15 to ... (?)" - but where is his second wintering area? what say to us the map?

Karl flew previous 2 years to South Sudan (= Republic of South Sudan), former Western Equatoria State
Image

and he stayed in not very big area south from Southern National Park
Tumbura, sometimes spelled Tambora or Tambura, is a town in Tumbura County, Gbudwe State, in the western part of South Sudan; Gbudwe is one of the 28 states of South Sudan created on 2 October 2015 - it is located in the Equatoria region and it is part of the former state of Western Equatoria (wiki)

Solo .... is not that Dam? :puzzled:

Later there were sightings in Saxony, 2x in January; In Brandenburg in February; In Lower Saxony also in January.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8th

Good Morning ! :hi:

Thanks for all your great work :bow:

Liz, I believe that there were always storks who were staying in Europe for different reasons, but in the past we didn't know about it.

In our time, with people travelling more often and with all the technical equipment like: Personal excellent cameras, live cams all over and above all, many of us have become aware of issues related to bird watching all over the world.
If you take me for example, I always liked to watch nature since early childhood, but I knew only what I saw near me or during some tours in other places. We visited many European countries during summer, but I saw empty Storks nests and didn't know a thing about BS, because in books you always see the WS :rolleyes: . In recent years, after I knew them from Cams, I'm looking for them while travelling.

Since we know new kinds of birds, we feel like we see them much more and everywhere, I hope you understand my explanation.

Good Morning Solo, Abigyl and all :hi:

New data by EEDI

3.12.2018 :loveshower:

Last Data 27.11.2018 7826 km
03.12.2018 Distance 7870 km + 44km

It seems, it is a very good area this year. 44 km in seven days is not much moving :shake:

It's hard to see Eedi in all the black lines :slap:

Abigyl, I understand your explanation. :2thumbsup:
In my childhood I have already observed animals. There were many to see. Much more than now. I grew up in Bavaria, in an area where there were wet meadows and swamps. It was very, very interesting for me. There was an incredible diversity. Snakes, birds, and mammals....It was more interesting than the school :) From time to time I forgot that I have to go to school. I stayed in the woods and meadows and watched what the animals do. My parents were excited. :rotf:
Now you can drive for miles in Germany and see nothing!

Observations of the black storks was already a long time ago. Humans have always been interested in the secret forest dwellers. They were fascinated. I don't think they could hibernate at earlier times. They need open water. Our winters were very hard and long. That is over now. Its getting warmer and warmer. Sooner or later it will have a negative impact on the population.

Yes weather is changing for the better, like Saudi - getting much more rain and storms in their deserts. You can see also in North Africa where they had even snow in the last winters.
And on the other hand - Europe with late or warmer winter or very dry years in France or others.

Swamps? you remind me going there with other kids since I was 5, and loosing one shoe each visit :laugh: . One day archaeologists will find all the old models and it will go to a museum. :rotf:
We had nice frogs there with their mini "babies" (tadpoles?) and charming daffodils with a rare smell that no longer exists. :thumbs:

Your shoes will go down in history. Archaeologists will think, that at this era there were one-legged humans. :rotf:
