Starting from summer 2006 colour-ringing scheme for the Aquatic Warbler was launched in Belarus. The main aim of the study is to study breeding biology of the Aquatic Warbler, and, in particular, whether second “wave” of breeding is in fact a second clutch or breeding of females which for some reasons don’t breed earlier.
The study is initiated and implemented by Dr Alexander Kozulin, APB-BirdLife Belarus Conservation Director and implemented at Sporava mire in Jaselda floodplain. The colours used as country codes are orange and black, either of which will be placed on the right leg of the bird together with “ordinary” metal ring.
