3 frenchies and a nightingale

lørdag 29. april 2017

Yesterday night, another French ringer arrived at Gedser! It's a french invasion :) And not only of ringers.....
The weather was warmer and there was no wind at all when we opened the nets. The rounds were not quiet neither busy, and it stayed like that through all morning, which is nice and easy.
In one of the first round, we got our first Pied flycatcher and were happy about it! Some more lesser whitethroat also were in the nets.
But then, just before 10am, Charles said he had heard a nightingale! As if it wanted to prove he was right, the bird just started singing again next to the lab!
We set up the speakers and played the tape leure. After about 15 min, the bird was in the high net! And it was not the trush nightingale which is more common here but "our" classic nightingale that all of us caught sometimes in France, But here, it is a rarity and this was only the third one caught in Gedser!!
Here is a picture of this good looking bird.

All in all, we caught 55 new birds.
