Western White Stork ringing recoveries - Rafha

A number of ringing recoveries of Western White Stork Ciconia ciconia have recently been sent to me by Mike Jennings to who I am very grateful. The birds colour rings were collected by a hunter who shot them near Rafha Saudi Arabia (29º 38´N 43º 30´E) and were sent by Abdullah al Kaabi, an A license bird ringer from Bahrain to Mike. Mike sent the details off and received the below details of the birds involved. Although Western White Stork is a scarce bird in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia it is commoner on the west coast where large flocks are sometimes seen. These birds were in the north central part of Saudi Arabia near to the Iraq border.
