New record of the black stork (Ciconia nigra) from North-East of Algerian Sahara

Abstract :

We observed for the first time the presence of the black stork (Ciconia nigra) at Lake Ayata in Oued Righ wetland complex (North-East of Algerian Sahara). This Passage visitor species was not recorded only a few times in all of Algerian wetlands since fifty years ago. We can consider this region as a new stopover in North Africa, which was not mentioned previously. It is very important that these aquatic ecosystems can benefit from enhancement through the development of an adequate national management.
