By now the LK forum members have linked the codes on the leg rings to names for the young birds.

XJ – was given the name Jaak (after the last letter of the ring). The wing length of the oldest osprey chick was 305 mm at the measuring and the weight 1,40 kilos; As a reminder, even with adults the males are smaller and lighter

Birthday kids

Almost a week ago our stork chicks got rings on their legs as well as transmitters as light-weight backpacks on their backs. The birdmen get more information about the movements of the young birds before their breeding period arrives.

All operations were carried out simultaneously in order to disturb nest life as little as possible and everything passed successfully.

This spring mew gull Enn (10 years old, hatched 2008 at Kakurahu), nesting at the Kakurahu in Matsalu, got a GPS transmitter.

Last week he was still busy at his breeding territory in the colony but now he has gone on migration. Last  night at midnight he stopped at the south-eastern coast of Saaremaa but today he already spent at the southern tip of the Gotland island.

Storklets being brought back to nest

Today the storklets got transmitters on their backs and rings on their legs. Urmas Sellis together with other bird people undertook the task and not in the nest but under it – the procedure took some time. In daytime the adults are hunting for food and there is a smaller risk for the birdmen to ”get caught” by the adults.
