Black Stork ringing 2013 - German-Polish BS family

A really short, but interesting BS-story follows...

This is "Paula" the Polish BS female "VN 4111" - she was born near Bierzwnik 2009 (ringed by Adam Mrugasiewicz on 26 June 2009) - brooded now 2013 in Brandenburg (East Prignitz) in the 5th calendar year. Not least thanks to the support of Robert Franck and his camera-trap.
Amazing - I saw "Paula" before 06 - 15 October 2011 in Israel!
The German male "Paul" 3th calendar year (ringed in Westerwald, Rhineland-Palatinate on 12 June 2011) - successful breeding together with "Paula"!

Black Stork colour-ringing Germany - total 2005-2013 - including ring recoveries.
This is the first colour-ringing place in Lower Saxony (Harz). The first Black Stork was ringed with the code "T594" and immediately the first recovery during SW-migration in France!
66 days after the ringing - "T594" was seen on 01 September 2013 - Lake Temple (Aube, France) - 570 km distance from birthplace.
