Arrival of some migratory species

søndag 24. april 2022
af Menno den Uijl

Today was quite a busy ringing day with 76 new birds. Some migrant birds that winter more south are starting to arrive at Blåvand finally. Today we caught two pied flycatchers, 5 lesser whitethroats, 13 willow warblers and 5 common redstarts. Today we at least dubbled the season amount for the species mentioned before. Next to that we also caught 9 chiffchaffs, so we almost caught over a 100 of them. Luckely today we were with 5 ringers, so we could all ring some birds. The seawatch was a bit more slow, probably because the wind (North east) did not push the birds to the shore but instead up the sea. After the migration count, did a round in the military zone and found three wrynecks. Besides that, Bello ringed his first birds today.
