Dear all,
I photographed a black stork in Reyhanli, Hatay, Turkey on 2 November 2022. When I arranged my shots noticed the individuals are marked (I think 18H3). Do you know someone where it comes from? Best greets"

Mr. Darius Anderwal answered to me:
It is a bird hatched in 2021, ringed by Krzysiek Dudzik (we are waiting for the final verification by Polring)
stork was also seen in Romania in 2021

it is 502 day from ringing and the distance is 2030 km from the nest 🙂

fingers crossed for next successful wintering and long life!

On Thursday, January 12, I went out with Niv Bessor to bird in Harod Valley. In the field near Kibbutz Beit Hashita. We located this young Black Stork wearing a 718R ring.
We gave the information to Yosef Kiat from the Israeli ringing center.
Today we got the answer.
The Stork ringed in the nest as a chick in July 2022. Thanks to Yosef for the quick reply.

continuation:

718R- hatched 2022 in southern Estonia, brood of 3.

There was an exchange of male parent in this nest. After some fights, new male ( ring 0C9T - Latvian ring) arrived at the nest. So this is an estonian- latvian mixed couple, which is not a common sight.
0C9T- hatched 2016, Zvēri, Latvia.

Origin of 0C9T and the birth nest of 718R.
The nest is situated at the EE-LV border.

ESTONIA - Israel

FB news about BS from Estonia who is wintering in Israel by Avichai Ran
https://www.facebook.com/avichai.ran/po ... hwAoC2kWRl
03.02.2023

A black stork with white coulour ring nr 7102 hatched in Estonia in 2013, and migrates every year a distance of about 3,000 km (as the crow flies) to spend the winter in Israel. Since the fall of 2014 it has been documented annually in Emek Harod.

Image

info from Urmas about this stork:
As much as we know, 7102 is one of earliest storks in Estonia every spring. Breeding time that stork spends in Saaremaa Island, but no data if 7102 nested really in those years. Rather visits different nests and moves between those. Probably does not have a mate.

Harod Valley: The Harod Valley (Hebrew: עמק חרוד, romanized: Emek Harod) is a valley in the Northern District of Israel. It is the eastern part of the Jezreel Valley, a transitional zone that extends to the Beit She'an Valley. (wiki)

contninuation

On top of what Urmas wrote, this bird has hanged around in two nests on his way to EE also in LV three years in a row (2018-2020), not the last two ones. 1st year it spent almost one month in LV, mating with two different females and then went to EE. Estonian ringing center has all the records from LV. So it is an interesting bird – obviousluy not „good enough” to be chosen by some female for more serious purposes than „sex on the way” despite his age. It’s not the only one of that kind.
(Dr. Māris Strazds, who was also interested in this - I got additional information for him from the author of the photo)

Spring migration 2023
I was called today to assist a black stork that was seen in the fish ponds at Kibbutz Gesher suffering a wing injury that prevented her from continuing her migration north.
According to the ring that a stork has on her foot, I learned that she was born in Poland in the port city of Gdansk (formerly known as Danzig).
With the help of Tzukit Raviv, volunteer Hiblons the stork will move to the wildlife shelter, I hope and believe that after the treatment at the wildlife shelter the stork will be able to return back to nature to continue the migration back home to Poland.

(who knows - maybe he got caught in the nets above the ponds)
