Beginning of the Swan season

Few days ago someone told me that the swans are back on Zagreb lakes..
So Vedran and I took our bikes and went first on Jarun and than I went to Bundek lake.

There were 17 Mute Swans on Jarun lake.. All adults exept 1 jungster. We manage to take them all on the beach and read 4 neck collars and 2 metal rings.

On Bundek there were 21 Mute swans, 6 jungsters, 2 neck collars and 1 metal ring read.

All of these birds had Croatian rings. Strangers will come later:)

So the winter has week will try our new net for cannons and (hopefully) soon try it on rubbish tip :)

Today I saw first bigger flock of BHGs on Sava river, some few hundreds

1st one in Sweden

Great news today from Kjeld Tommy Pedersen:)
One lady was feeding birds in Malmö and spotted one of BHG ringed with our white S165. The bird was ringed on December 20th 2009 on Jakuševec, and was found on November 6th 2010 in Malmö, some 1200 km from ringing place. It's the very first of our BHGs found in Sweden (hopefully not last :) )
