A nice spring day

tirsdag 25. oktober 2016
af Laila Aranda Romero

Today we have waked up with a thick fog for the first two hours, making the start really slowly. However, once it's cleared out, we have enjoyed a beautiful spring day with a total of 154 individuals banded and 20 different species. Although the weather conditions have been perfect for ringing, there were almost no birds migrating ( if we compare of course with previous days). It seems that birds prefer to migrate in cloudy/raining and windy days; making our day-to-day ringing more challengeable and unpredictable.

Despite of this, there have been small flocks of Siskins, Goldfinches, Bramblings/ Chaffinches and Blue Tits/Great Tits moving around our garden and keeping us entertained but not too busy ;). We have had also two nice surprises: 1 male Great Woodpecker and 1 stunning male adult Sparrowhawk cheering up our day!!!

In addition, we have also observed 15 Common Buzzards, 1 Rough-Legged Buzzard, 2 Red Kites and few Sparrowhawks flying over our heads, but not really migrating.
