Article summary

This brief note gives an overview of a program of color ringing of the Great Cormorants Phalacrocorax carbo breeding in Harchies marshes (Wallonia, Belgium). Every spring from 2005 to 2010, between 17 and 42 chicks were marked with colour rings. Analysis of resightings show that young cormorants disperse westward, mainly to the coasts of the Channel and North Sea, but more broadly across a wide area ranging from the Loire valley to the Netherlands. Several adult individuals have already been observed in the colony in Hensies but one adult was also observed during the breeding season in a colony in the center of the Netherlands.
