Trying to catch up with blogging - Veshtica/04.02.2018

In the past year, I was unable to find time for enough ringing sessions. Anyways, I will catch up with few post about my ringing activities in 2018.

My first ringing attempt for ringing was on 04.02.2018. Unfortunately the weather was against me - sunny weather combined with winds.

The totals for the day were:
Total: 4
Great tit - 1
Blue tit - 1
Tree sparow - 1
Nuthatch - 1

Blue tit/Parus caeruleus/

Great tit/Parus major

Nuthatch/Sitta europaea

Bird ringing compilation 2017

2017 wasn't my best year with 171 ringed birds, but those numbers came from 28 different species which is very good compared to previous years.

The highlights of the year are the 4 Hawfinches and my first Dendrocopos medius.

Enjoy some of the 2017 pictures :)

Veshtica - 24th December 2017

I've planned my first ringing session for the holidays on 24.12.2017. The feeders were full for the last few weeks and I was expecting a decent number of new birds.

Unfortunately the morning started with very strong wind (10,4 m/s) and I had to set up the nets few hours later than expected. 

The results for the day were very bad, because the in the previous days more than 100 birds were feeding at the station, so 19 birds is quite disappointing.

Total: 17(2)

Great tit -9(1)
Blue tit - 6(0)
Nuthatch - 1(1)
Marsh tit - 1 (0)
