Article summary

Hungary joined the international Black Stork colour ringing program in 1994. Since then, out of 297 Black Storks colour ringed in Hungary, 21 were identified upo migration, in Israel. All Black Storks ringed in hungary and identified during migration chose the eastern route through Israel. There is a Black Stork ringed in Hungary that is supposed to hace spent the winter in Israel. We have no observation data from African wintering places. The Black Storks ringed in our study area disperse after fledging, families do not stay together. Young storks do not stay with their parents and they even do not stay together. Flock’s constitution is changing all the time and they also mix with individuals arriving from northern and western direction. There are individuals which return to their places of origin and might nest there. A certain part of sub-adult Black Storks spend their first two summers in Europe, sometimes close to their place of birth.
