Spoonbill

This is information I just received about a colour ringed Spoonbill. There is a lot to get through but briefly I reported the bird in 2014. It was ringed as a 'pullus' in 2009 in the Netherlands. As you will see the co-ordinator of the research has been seriously ill and still has a long way to reach full recovery. However a team has stared to get information out to people (So if you're still waiting please be patient.)



first of all, our sincere apologies for not replying earlier on your
observation of a colour ringed Spoonbill,
Due to a serious illness of Otto Overdijk, the pivot on which everything
turned, and his very slow recovery, we had a serious backlog in processing
all the reports.
We first processed the 2015/2016 observations, and now we are working hard
to diminish the backlog of the older observations.

Thank you for your understanding and patience, and if there are questions
still unanswered, or just in case you have other observations of
colourringed Spoonbill, please feel free to contact me!

Unfortunately Otto is not fully recovered now, it will take some more time.
Nevertheless we have now a small group of enthusiastic people to process the observations of colourringed Spoonbills, and we are almost ready to process the new observations of this spring. The first Spoonbills arrived already in The Netherlands.

Would be great if you could observe and report colourringed Spoonbills in the (near) future!

Kind regards
On behalf of Werkgroep Lepelaar

Dear observer,

Thanks for forwarding your observation! In the appendix of this e-mail you
will find an overview of all observations of  the bird(s) you reported. We
would like to ask you to check the overview and report any mistakes to us.

On our website you can find more information about the spoonbill project:
www.metawad.nl  and www.werkgroeplepelaar.nl .

We are working on a website for online sighting entry where you can see the
life histories of the birds you observed. We hope it will be available in
the course of 2016.

From 2015 on we will stop with the Yellow flags, because we are running out
of combinations. We will also stop with Dark Blue and Lime. Dark Blue is
often confused with Green and Lime is no longer available. As replacement,
we will start with Black and Light Blue flags.
Be aware! The metal ring was and is part of the combination and the place
where the metal ring sits is important. Both the old and the new ringing
combinations consist of: 1 flag, 4 colourrings and 1 metal ring.

The colours that will be used from now on are:
Black = N(oir), Green = G(reen), Red = R(ed), Yellow = Y(ellow), Pale Blue =
P(ale Blue) and the metal ring (a)
The colours that are no longer used, but are still present in the older
combinations are Dark Blue (B) and Lime (L).

The colour of the flag reveals the origin of the bird (i.e. where it was
born):
The Netherlands: previously Yellow flag (Yf), from now on Black flag (Nf)
Belgium: previously Dark Blue flag (Bf), from now on Black flag (Nf)
Germany: Green flag (Gf)
Portugal: previously Dark Blue flag (Bf), from now on Light Blue flag (Pf)
Mauritania: Red flag (Rf)

Hope to hear from you again!

Lok & Petra de Goeij
