Amazing day

If we compare the session of today with the previous from last weeks, we have a huge difference in number of ringed birds; 114 ringed birds from 18 species. Undoubtedly, has been one of the best spring migration days for passerines.

The highlight bird of the day has been the Willow Warbler with 27 birds. I ringed four species of Sylvia warbler with a total of 39 birds. Also, I have had a good number of Acrocephalus warblers with 21 birds; at early morning I have had mixed Marsh and Reed Warblers, but then after a couple of hours I ringed only Marsh Warblers. And also to highlight the capture of three species of flycatchers.

Tree Pipit: 1
Common Redstart: 3
Whinchat: 1
Blackbird: 1
Marsh Warbler: 15
Reed Warbler:  6
Icterine Warbler: 7
