Willow warblers : the invaders !

mandag 8. maj 2017
af Charles Tessier

After a rainy night, I opened the nets under a sky of clouds. As I start the week being the only ringer, I decided to use only 10 nets, and it was more than enough !

Robins have left the site, but the bushes were full of common redstarts and pied flycatchers, there was movements last night ! And quickly, we realized that another wave of willow warblers had arrived at the ringing camp.

So, it was a new great morning : more than 200 captures, half willow warblers, 35 common redstarts, 22 pied flycatchers. I was definitely busy until noon.

At about nine o'clock, we were lucky to see a wryneck very well near the lab. Fourty five minutes later, it was trapped (was it the same ?) ! A captivating species, very appreciate by ringers and birdwatchers.

P1080493

Others unordinary captures are a breeding female of goldcrest, a redwing, a reed bunting and the second wood warbler of the season.
