[singlepic id=433 w=200 h=150 float=left]Ringing of White Stork nestlings in Dumbrăvioara and Ernei localities was carried out in 25th of June, 2010. As all stork nests are located on the electric power poles, we were helped with a special car from the Tg.-Mureș Electricity Company (thanks for them). The ringing was carried out by the team: Alfano Niccolo, Daróczi Szilárd, Kósa Ferenc, Peris Cabre Marta, Papp Tamás, Szabó D. Zoltán and Szállassy Noémi. Unfortunaltely, like in the previous years, we couldn’t ring at all stork nests, as the car from the Electricity company could stay for only a short period –there are many problems on the electric network because of the recent storms. Totally we ringed 18 chicks in 6 nests and in one nest there were 3 dead chicks – probably because of the recent adverse wheater (thunderstorms, hail-storms). One day earlier Kósa Ferenc, Szabó D. Zoltán and Szállassy Noémi ringed in the Giurgeului Basin 25 chicks in 7 nests.
