Noordwijk aan Zee, sand suppletion works – 20130615

Because I had such a good time visiting the sand suppletion works at the beach of Noordwijk aan Zee on Friday (see Noordwijk aan Zee, sand suppletion works – 20130614), I decided to go back on Saturday as well.

Here are some impressions of the activities over there:

Ring readings

Many ringed individuals were present again. I managed to read 37 color rings: 7 Herring Gulls, 29 Lesser Black-backed Gulls and 1 Great Black-backed Gull. Countries ranged from Belgium (5), Netherlands (28), Norway (1), Great-Britain (1), France (1), and Spain (1).

Highlight was the Spanish ring on a second-calendar year Lesser Black-backed Gull.

Here are some of the ringed and unringed individuals that I took photos of:

  1. Hoi Maarten, ik zag dat jij, net als wij, ook groen K.YAY gezien hebt. Alleen is deze vogel niet op Texel geringd zoals je onderschrift meldt, maar op de Vliehors. Of heb je soms een andere life history gekregen dan wij..? 😉

    Groets, Frank

    • Hoi Frank,

      Ik krijg zojuist de gegevens binnen en K.YAY is inderdaad van de Vliehors. Foutje van mijn kant: ik neem bij het zien van een groene K-ring gelijk aan dat hij van Texel komt. Het is ook pas mijn 3de ring van die lokatie 😉

      Groeten,

      Maarten
