Litmerkt sanderla � Dj�pavogi


Fuglamerkingar hafa margv�slegan tilgang , m.a. a� fylgjast me� farlei�um, varpheimkynnum, vetrast��vum og aldri svo �a� helsta s� nefnt. Hluti merktra fugla bera svo k�llu� litmerki en �a� eru lithringir sem settir eru � f�tur fuglana (sj� mynd af sanderlu h�r a� ofan), me� �essu er h�gt a� greina hvern einstakling fyrir sig og fylgja �eim �annig eftir. T�luvert hefur veri� litmerkt af va�fuglum en h�r � landi ver�um vi� mest v�r vi� litmerkta ja�rakana �� � seinni �rum hafi veri� nokku� �tak me� a� litmerkja fleiri tegundir �slenskara fugla auk fugla sem fara h�r um � lei� � varpst��var � Gr�nlandi og Kanada.

Sanderlan h�r a� ofan s�st og var myndu� � Dj�pavogi 29. ma� s.l. af Andr�si Sk�lasyni, h�n var � h�pi um 30 fugla. �essi einstaklingur var merktur � Wash � Su�austur Englandi �ri� 1994 og svo n��ist hann aftur �ri� 2004 og voru �� litahringirnir settir � fuglinn og s��an �� hefur veri� h�gt a� fylgjast me� honum, en hann hefur haft vetursetu � svipu�um sl��um og hann var merktur �. Lengi vel t�ldu bretar a� sanderlur sem hef�u vetursetu � Bretlandi v�ru af S�ber�skum uppruna vegna tveggja fugla sem n��ust �ar. �ri� 1985 var lesi� af m�rgum litmerktum sanderlum � Sandger�i sem merktar vour � Nor�ur-Englandi. Og n� hefur sta�fests a� fuglar sem merktir eru � Su�austur-Englandi fara l�ka til Gr�nlands/Kanada.

H�r m� sj� feril fuglsins, fuglinn var merktur me� st�lhring 27. febr�ar 1994, lesi� var af fuglinu, �94, �02, �04 og svo 17. okt�ber 2004 var hann svo litmerktur og hefur all oft veri� lesi� � litmerkin s��an � Englandi.
