October 30th

BS from PL - YELLOW
Farewell to Europe!
When YELLOW was stationed below the town of Blagoevgrad in Bulgaria, our foot transmitter observed Rosen Kostadinov, an ornithologist who sent us some pictures, for which we are very grateful :-) It turned out that the bird was in the company of 4 other young black storks and several gray herons. We have some photos that we received courtesy of our Bulgarian colleague. YELLOW looks good and is in such good shape that 28 and 29 X started 450 km on SE and reached the Sea of Marmara. So, goodbye Europole! (DA).
nice photos on FB https://www.facebook.com/BocianiMy/post ... 1859059364

FB BocianiMy news about "white" - WOODEK

GT: "White" in northern Nigeria, it seems that it is definitely harder for food in the unfriendly climate of Africa than the "Yellow" in Turkey. In the last two weeks, "White" has been moving in an area of ​​about 152 square kilometers in search of convenient foraging.

Hello Solo :hi:
TY for this new information. I am very surprised to find Woodek virtually at the same place.
He is still at this river Gagere and the farest flight he has done has about 80km.
But as he is still at the waterside of this river, me, I suppose he is finding a lot of food - in contrast to bocianimy - and doesn't want to move.
I hope so much, I am right and Woodek is fine !!! :puzzled:
greetings from Baska

:hi: Baska,
the first map from Niger (Kurawa area) https://goo.gl/pzHp9g and the second (Woodek flew south to Shinkafi area) https://goo.gl/2w2meP - and the distance https://s18.postimg.org/629vaq4ah/WOODEK_gm.jpg
Younger from last year flew per day only 10km, maybe it is by Woodek mistake on FB page (not square km): 152km/14 day it is also 10-11km per day
I think, you are Baska right - when it is not enough food, then they fly to another area

I hope all "our" storks are fine :headroll:
:wave: all together

news FB LODZ (1.12.2017, 12:41) https://goo.gl/2B3G7L - YOUNGER :loveshower:

GT: Our YOUNGER (a junior chick who in 2016 fled from the nest on a pine) wintered well in the south of Sudan. November 2017 spent exactly where he spent November year earlier. Often for night-time chooses the same power poles (trees have been cut long ago), often feeds in the same canals irrigating the fields with water from the Nile Blue. A year earlier he flew a bit more - he learned the terrain. Now its activity is more concentrated area and moved about 400 m to the south, next to the next pole. The locator is fully charged. The bird is richer with experience from last year so it should work out :-)

WHITE escapes from Harmattan
In North-West Nigeria, the rainy season has just finished and from the end of November to the middle of March, the cold period will last - Harmattan. It is characterized by the ambient temperature fluctuations during day and night. Temperature can be as low as 9 ° C throughout the day, but sometimes in the afternoon it can also rise to 30 ° C, while relative humidity drops below 10%. Then also appears a very dry and dusty, north-eastern wind (of the same name) that blows from the Sahara Desert through West Africa to the Gulf of Guinea. Harmattan reduces humidity to such an extent that trees break (!), scatter cloud cover, prevent precipitation and sometimes create large clouds of dust that can cause sandstorms and darkness for a few days.
Probably for this reason WHITE (young black stork from the online nest from the Forest Inspectorate Grotniki) shifted on the last two days from the borderlands of Sokoto and Zamfara states, where he fed in the attractive Gagere basin up to 44 days (from 18 October) and flew 300 km to SE throughout Zamfara, Katsina end part Kaduna. 2-3 December it flew at a temperature of about 30 ° C for 6 hours from 9/10am to 3/4 pm with an average flying speed of 42 km / h at an average altitude of 976 m (at most 1710 m). We hope that it will not be caught by sandstorms and will find somewhere a new and safe place (DA).

That is good news indeed. :loveshower: :loveshower: :loveshower: So, Woodek(and other storks without transmitters showed him the route) are wintering in West Africa and Younger from last year in East Africa. Two black storks from the same place(Lodz) chose different ways and different wintering places.

news FB BocianyMi (15.12.2017, 13:24) https://goo.gl/A1Y9v4 - WOODEK :loveshower:

WHITE - tough guy and traveler!
Remember how we wrote about WHITE "running away" from Harmattan? After a few days without communication with his logger, when we were afraid of how he dealt with in these "murderous" African conditions (ca. 30 C) it turned out that hard art from it ...
On December 4-12, it flew over 1,100 km south-east of the previous place of existence and is currently located in central-eastern Nigeria on the border with Cameroon near the Gashaka Gumti National Park. The Gashaka Gumti National Park is the place of the highest mountain peaks in Nigeria, for example the "Death Mountain" and "The Wind Mountain." However, what seems most important for WHITE is the river flowing through the fish park: Taraba, Benue and Kam. The park has over 500 species of birds and 50 different species of fish, most of which are inaccessible to vehicles due to the wavy, difficult and uneven terrain, as well as dense vegetation and attractive for our traveler - numerous rivers and streams The park is officially designated as one of the "important bird areas" in Africa, and we hope that in this area there will be peace and availability of food ...
