Two Frenchies and one rarity!

Yesterday night, Nicolas, a trainee from France, arrived to help me with the station. I must say I was happy and excited to have my own trainee! And to be honest, to have some company! :D
And what's more, although we had a quite windy and slightly rainy morning, he brought the birds with him! And even more, a very particular one! Indeed, this morning we caught a artic redpoll! Fantastic! This was the fifth one caught in the station ever! Furthermore, the first one in spring!!
Of course, we are sharing this young (2k) little beauty with you:

With it, two cabarets and one flammea!

It was one of the 47 birds ringed today! Willow warbler were also in the place and few of them were singing in the garden for the first time.
