Our coot in Bremen! [Germany]

Just 2 months passed since i have ringed the coot (Fulica atra) with C60 neckband in Szczecin. On the 31th of December 2009 and the 1st of January 2010 the bird was observed in Bremen. It's nearly 400 km from the ringign place.

Results in the north-west Poland are amazing! Actually just 10 colourringed coots give us 1 long distance message.

Thanks Kai Dallmann to report.

Your coot has now travelled to the town of Groningen in the northern part of the Netherlands, about 160 kms west of Bremen. It was first spotted the 28th of januar 2010.

The bird is present in a group of coots and other waterfowl in a canal in the centre of the town (Marwixkade, near the central station; 53/12/39.06 N - 6/33/31.86 E).

I can sent you some pictures of the animal, but for that I need an e-mail address where I can sent the pictures to.


Best wishes,
