Day 36 of ringing

The most common species were the Wood Warbler (Phylloscopus sibilatrix, Δασοφυλλοσκόπος) followed by the Garden Warbler (Sylvia borin, Κηποτσιροβάκος) and the Sand Martin (Riparia riparia, Οχθοχελίδονο).  Some delayed juveniles Nightingales (Luscinia megarhynchos, Αηδόνι) are around the last couple of days while today some Whinchats (Saxicola rubetra, Καστανολαίμης) reappeared in fair numbers (they peaked the previous week). It seems that the Golden Orioles (Oriolus oriolus, Συκοφάγος) are delayed as we still have those beautiful adult males felling into our nets!
