Another week-end with beautiful weather, the ringing action usually started at 6 a.m with mist flowing over the reeds. Over the week-end we ringed a total of 236 birds. From the 236 birds we had 154 first captures, 72 recaptures and 10 control captures. At the moment a lot of hatchlings fly around most of them are Chiff Chaff s but there are also young long-tailed tits which found the way into our nets. Further captures were an adult Willow Warbler in moult and a Blackcap born in 2006. Actually there are also a lot of swifts and house martins coming to drink and to catch low-flying insects. For further information have a look at Activity report.
