New and old birds

Today has been one of the most interesting days from last weeks. We did not have a big amount of captures, only 24.  Though we could capture 13 different species, being the most remarkable the four captures of Red-backed Shrike with two males and two females.

We ringed the first Garden Warbler of the season and we had a recapture of the first Icterine Warbler as well.

About the observations at the garden we saw Spotted Flycatcher, one Blake Kite, three Honey Buzzard and the most surprising was to watch a Waxwing, which it seem  is a very late record for this region.

However, the big surprise of the day for Michael and Hans G. was when we recapture the Blyth’s Reed Warbler.
