Bird ringing started at Lake Kuyucuk (21 August 2009)

KuzeyDoga Society started bird ringing season at Lake Kuyucuk on August 21, 2009. Our Czech ringers Libor Praus, Jindrich Sedlacek and Turkish volunteers Güler Bozok, Remzi Cevher, İlknur Çelebi and Yiğit Ozan Çolak set up the nets and started to catch the birds today. The study is being carried out under the control of our field biologist Yakup Şaşmaz at the station. The ringing goes on 24 hours a day and volunteers apply shifts for night checks. The nets are being checked once an hour and birds are being brought to the ringing trailer. Our ringing experts Libor and Jindrich are ringing the birds.

Today we ringed the following 11 species of birds at the station:

Little stint
Wood sandpiper
Sand martin
Yellow wagtail
Sedge Warbler
