Today we will trace the Red-breasted Goose Panteley, whose flight we monitor with a satellite transmitter.
After spending more than a month in the border region of northwestern Kazakhstan and southern Russia, Pantaley sped off to his wintering grounds skipping the traditional autumn stop in the Manich Gudilo area and the Rostov Reservoir. He reached Balta Alba in Romania with one stop in Taganrog Bay, Southern Russia. Pantaley flew a nearly 19-hour marathon, passing about 1,000 km at an average speed of about 50 km/h to reach Romania, one of the most important places for Red-breasted Geese – Balta Alba. Our colleagues from Romania counted 4,000 Red-breasted Geese in recent days there. We are waiting to see if this winter Pantaley will visit the place where he was marked with a transmitter in February – the area of the lake Durankulak in Bulgaria. We remind you that the goose Pantaley was named by the students from the Eco Club at the Shabla High School “Asen Zlatarov”.
