Day 31 of ringing: Nightjar

Today we catched one Nightjar (Caprimulgus europeus)!, the second of this autumn (the first one the first day of ringing).

After the day of yesterday, the birds have left the island probably this night. Today few birds, the species more ringed today has been yet the blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla), then some Garden warbler (Sylvia borin), Robin (Erithacus rubecula), Red-breasted flycatcher (Ficedula parva) and Spotted flycatcher (Muscicapa striata).

Today the slovakian volunteers left the island with great sadness.
