2021 Totals

 The new year is upon us and it's time to analyze the results and achievements. For me personally, this was the most successful year in terms of the number of ringed birds and new species.

In this post, I'll include only the bird ring at my usual site in NW Bulgaria.

Most of the ringing was during the autumn migration, but I also put some effort into nest monitoring/ringing which gave good results(compared to previous years). Unfortunately, my nestboxes had very low success and I couldn't ring any Semicollared flycatchers (Ficedula semitorquata).
