More than 1700 birds got identifiable rings in their feet in Lagoon of Orikum

 1700 birds got rings on their feets on the Orikum Lagoon. For the fourth consecutive year, the Ornithological Association of Albania (AOS) and its Hungarian partners has organized the count of migratory birds that pass through Karaburun peninsula with the aim of protecting them.

The Ornithologist Taulant Bino explains in an interview to Top Channel that in the focus of the project is a small species weighing several grams, but traveling thousands of miles, known as Moustached warbler (acrocephalus melanopogon). This bird travels across the entire Adriatic sea line to winter in Albania.

40 different species of birds were caught in the marsh and were put rings and then released. The reeds are the most suitable places of shelter for these migrating birds.

In the Orikum camp, where the nets have been set up to capture these birds and then the place of the identifying rings, rare birds are found as well as a species coming from the Himalayas.
