Lesser Whitethroat

In the early morning (5 am) the sky was totally clear and there was a soft wind blowing. After sunrise clouds set in and it became very windy and the sky became heavily filled with clouds that didn't look very promising for bird ringing. Nevertheless we trapped the first arriving Blackcaps of the autumn season. 22 were trapped and ringed. Furthermore we caught a couple of other birds such as 4 (new) Robins, 7 Chiffchaffs, 7 Blue tits, 3 Great Tits, 1 Garden Warbler (surpsrisingly only 1) and two Bullfinches and a Chaffinch. The little surprise of the day was a Lesser Whitethroat hanging in the nets, of which we only catch one or two birds a year.
