ringing recovery

One of my favourite things is reading rings on birds. So I was very excited to find this colour-ringed white stork on the Kitulo plateau last week. It was ringed as a nestling in Poland in 2011, some 7061 km away. This bird probably flew the same distance as I did to get to Kitulo!


  1. Hey!
    I would like to say, that I started read rings on gulls this year. And I'm very excited too, when I saw a bird with a ring.
    By the way, you do great work, what I can see on the blog. And the 2nd great thing is polish white stork! I'm from Poland, so it's good to hear about bird from my country.
    Greetings, Olek
    PS. My English is quite dreadful... Sorry for that.
