A Starling and a Sparrow

A fairly average day today, 51 birds caught (34 new) of 14 species including a Starling (Stær), a Tree Sparrow (Skovspurv) a Firecrest (Rødtoppet Fuglekonge) and a Pied Flycatcher (Broget Fluesnapper).

The species diversity in the garden has changed quite a lot since we arrived here a month ago, the  Robins (Rødhals), Dunnocks (Jernspurv) and Wrens (Gærdesmutte) have been replaced by Redstarts (Rødstjert), Blackcaps (Munk), Willow Warblers (Løvsanger) and Whitethroats (Gærdesanger/Tornsanger).

Luis from Portugal will arrive tonight. He will continue the ringing here at GFU when we leave for England on the 15th.
