 2009 ringing in Sardinia (Italy)
     Arnaud Béchet

Dear all,
At least we find the energy to write to you after the banding of Greater Flamingos in Cagliari. The 10th banding operation in Sardinia and the 8th in Saline di Macchiareddu! We ringed 501 chicks of Greater Flamingos on Saturday 1st of August. During the catch the chicks crossed two dikes. The total amount of crèche is provisionally estimated in 4.000 - 6.000 chicks. A total of 100 people were involved (30 persons who took regularly part each banding of Greater flamingo in Sardinia, 35 irregularly and 35 new entries). We were supported by 8 teams during the catch and 6 teams during the ringing. A team of 2 veterinarians guaranteed the assistance and collected about 50 samples for avian flu monitoring.
This project has been financed by Regione Autonoma della Sardegna.
all the best
