It's all about the robins!

onsdag 26. april 2017
af Marie Chevalier

Today, the wind left us alone again and we had a nice busy day at least, but it was still very chilly! We ringed 96 birds this morning of 13 different species!

The most common one was robins with 63 of these! So they have probably arrived during the night or early morning.
One new spring species was caught again! The lesser whitethroat was singing in the garden this morning and got caught eventually.


Birds seemed not to stay around, because we had few retraps compared to the other days. Consequently, we can hope tomorrow will be quite good as well... Moreover, the wind should change directions during the night and should head from south in the morning, that could bring us some new birds as well. Fingers crossed!

While closing, Nicolas had also the chance to observe a short-eared owl coming from the sea and continuing without stopping to the North.
