Day 25 of ringing. 1 October 2014. “Kalo mina” “Kalo dromo” birds.

“Kalo mina” “kalo dromo” (Have a nice month and a nice travel) birds.

After 4 days we couldn’t ring, the weather got better and finally we could enjoy another ringing session.
Seems that we are in the beginning of the end of the migration and almost all the species have passed in their way to Africa.

Erithacus rubecula.

We trapped more or less the usual number of birds but with a small number of differet species and some of them are the latest migrants like European Robin (Erithacus rubecula, Κοκκινολαίμης) and Eurasian Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla, Μαυροσκούφης).

Today was a perfect day for the volunteers, they had the chance to be trained in bird handling and refresh what they have learnt about the strategies of the moult, identification of species and also how to take the measurements.

Today we trapped 25 birds of 5 different species.

The most abundant species today was European Robin (Erithacus rubecula, Κοκκινολαίμης). We trapped more than the half of the total.

New species:

Other species trapped:

Common Redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus, Φοινίκουρος).
Eurasian Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla, Μαυροσκούφης).
Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata, Σταχτομυγοχάφτης).
Red-breasted Flycatcher (Ficedula parva, Νανομυγοχάφτης).

Luckily last night we were invited by the Archaeologists in a presentation about the archaeological sites and the history of island which was given by Mr. Aris Tsaravopoulos .

This presentation was very fruitful for us, thus we connected the guided tour we had the day before with a more theoretical background about the historical evidence of the island and how the community of Antikythera evolved across the centuries .We are very grateful for the invitation!
