Day 28 of ringing. The last day

In our last day we caught 2 Wood warbler (Phylloscopus sibilatrix), 1 Garden warbler (Sylvia borin), 1 Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla), 2 Spotted flycatcher (Muscicapa striata) 1 Marsh warbler (Acrocephalus scirpaceus). All of this week was very quiet, probably because it’s very hot in the continent and the autumn birds are there. I would like to […]

Day 27 of ringing

Today we went down to the nets and then another Sparrohawk (Accipiter nisus) in the same net, so another healthy run in the morning but when we arrive scaped… But in the next net there were another surprise for us, the barn owl again!! This was probably the big sister of the first one, her […]

Day 24 of ringing

          Only 5 birds during all the morning, so a good morning of data entry. Today the visibility was even worse than yesterday, maybe because of the wind from west. Very few birds around and a long morning… At least we trapped a new specie but it was a Robin (Erithacus rubecula) so […]
