Baltic Sea trip [day 2]

Dziwnów, Zachodniopomorskie, Poland:

We are lucky today :) Saw a pair of mute swans (cygnus olor). The female had a german metal ring, male polish - nice marriage!
worse with the ring-read !? The Hiddensee swan rings are quite unreadable. Have small sign compare polish and also have more digits. That reason we caught this swan.

additionally we put a yellow plastic ring from the polish swan project. Shouldn't be any problems with reading in the future...

Międzyzdroje, Zachodniopomorskie, Poland

By the way we had some time to ringing. Overall ringed 7 Black-Headed Gulls (metal + white plastic ring). I wish everyone could read them :)
