My work is finished. More than 4,300 kilometers of 26 days between the fields and fish ponds.I've spent 350 hours in the field. In the next few weeks, I will analyze all data.
A big "fish" while my ring readings in Israel 2011! - The origin from ad. BS "CC57" (red plastic on right tibia - difficult to find) is from Belgium! The BS was ringed as nestling by Gerard Gadoul in Belgium on 15.06.2004. In May 2006 the BS was observed still in France! INCREDIBLE!!
Special thanks to Frederic Chapalain for the fast answer with ringing data!
