BocianiMy, today 8:22 CEST
BIAŁY nad rzeką Gagere
Po 53 dniach wędrówki BIAŁY, tj. bocian czarny, który wyleciał 23 sierpnia z gniazda online w środkowej Polsce, dotarł szczęśliwie na zimowisko nad rzekę Gagere w szyickim stanie Sokoto w północnej części Nigerii. Przez ten czas przeleciał około 10000 km. Jeśli odejmiemy pojedyncze postoje i jeden główny (15 dniowy) nad węgierską rzeką Cisa, okazuje się, że średnio pokonywał 250 km dziennie. Dużym zaskoczeniem był dwukrotny przelot po około 200 km każdy nad morzami: Adriatyckim i Śródziemnym. Również pokonanie w 10 dni ponad 2600 km piasków środkowej Sahary przez gatunek silnie związany z rybami i siedliskami mokradłowymi jest wielkim wyczynem. Obecnie ptak żeruje na rozlewiskach rzeki Gagere pomiędzy miasteczkami Magagindoke a Kurawa. Niestety Nigeria nie jest bezpiecznym miejscem nie tylko dla zimujących tam europejskich ptaków, ale także dla zamieszkujących ją ludzi. Pod wpływem nacisku islamskich ugrupowań na północy kraju (Boko Haram) wprowadzono prawo szariatu. Od tego czasu tysiące ludzi stały się ofiarami religijnych pogromów


Google translation:
WHITE on the river Gagere
After 53 days of traveling WHITE, ie black stork, which flew out 23 August from the nest online in central Poland, arrived happily for a wintering on the river Gagere in the Shiite state of Sokoto in northern Nigeria. During this time it flew about 10000 km. If we take single stops and one main (15 day) trip over the Hungarian river Cisa, it turns out that he was on average 250 km per day. A great surprise was the two-way flight of about 200 km each over the Adriatic and Mediterranean seas. Also defeating in 10 days over 2,600 km of sand of the central Sahara by a species strongly associated with fish and wetland habitats is a great feat. Currently the bird feeds on the backwaters of the Gagere River between the towns of Magagindoke and Kurawa. Unfortunately, Nigeria is not a safe place for not only the European crowds, but also for the people living there. Under the influence of Islamic groups in the north of the country (Boko Haram), sharia law was introduced. Since then thousands of people have become victims of religious pogroms

But I will still be worried because of these words : "Unfortunately, Nigeria is not a safe place for the European crowds" :shock:
That is right ! In the north of Nigeria is a serious situation of famine since years. It might be, they will catch and eat him if he doesn't leave this place ! The sooner the better ! .... :cry:

not crowds :mrgreen: (GT is funny) - for the wintering birds from Europe
(on FB I have this news, but I was all day not at home)

Baska, too more area is not safe for our migratory birds (on their way and also on their wintering areas) :bow:

Woodek has very interesting migration path

Good morning Solo ! :hi:

This would be nice, his flight would end near Lake Chad. That is a very good region where hundreds or thousands of storks spend their hibernation. :rolleyes:
But he took another flight path and from here (red point) to Lake Chad he would have to cross again the desert.
I suppose and hope that he will go further to the south and follow the river Niger. There are wetlands and national parks. Perhaps until Kainji Lake National Park. (orange point)

Solo, I don't think that was a mistake. That was the general flight path for all Black Storks...
The vegetation map is very interesting.
The picture is a screenshot I made some time within a wonderful film about Algeria. :mrgreen:
