Totally unexpected day

søndag 23. oktober 2016
af Laila Aranda Romero

As it was predicted, the weather has been perfect for ringing with a total of 778 new individuals ringed and 16 different species; being  the Goldcrests the most abundant with 468 ringed.

However no one has expected to beat the record of Wrens ringed in one day with a total of 189 ( yes, you have read perfectly well: 189 with just 6 nets). What amazing training on how to take out Wrens as quickly as possible ;). In fact, yesterday night we were discussing which species would be the main start: maybe Goldcrests as previous days or maybe there would be a swap to Dunnocks/Robins or Blue Tits, but of course  there was no mention about Wrens.  Who will guess it!!! 

In addition, we have also had a good numbers of Chiffchaffs and Northern Bullfinches ringed (24 and 19 respectively) and another unexpected surprise: one Yellow Wagtail as it is quite late for them.
