When the wind join us

tirsdag 2. maj 2017
af Charles Tessier

The days come one after another but the weather is the same. A sky without clouds was above us during the opening of the nets, as well as gusts of wind. So it was a session with a limited number of nets, only the more sheltered were efficient.

As we expected, there wasn't a lot of birds trapped. However, a small group of lesser redpolls broke the monotony of the rounds. Luckily, nine birds of this species were captured in the middle of the morning, thanks to them !

Another interesting bird was ringed : a reed bunting. Not much common in the site, it's only the 8th trapped this year. So we enjoyed the moment with this young female.


Birds ringed today:
Jernspurv - Dunnock: 2
Rødhals - Robins: 1
Gædersanger - Lesser whitethroat: 4
Munk - Blackcap: 1
Gransanger - Chiffchaff: 2
Løvsanger - Willow warbler: 1
Grønirisk - Greenfinch: 1
Lille Gråsisken - Lesser redpoll : 9
Rørspurv - Reed bunting : 1
