First ringing for 2017

On 14.04.2017 I was able to make my first bird ringing session for 2017.
As usual, I went to Veshtica ,small village near the town of Belogradchik,Bulgaria (I will make a post about it in the near future).

The weather was not very good for ringing with lots of wind and sun. That forced me to make a short ringing session, but I'm still very satisfied with the results:

2 - C.coccothraustes
1- Sylvia atricapilla
1-Fringilla coelebs
1-Prunella modularis
1-Emberiza citrinella
Total: 6 new birds.
