In the morning we ringed 4 Reed warblers, 9 Sedge Warblers, 5 Savi's Warblers, 1 Bluethroat, 4 Sardinian Warblers, 2 Lesser Whitethroats, 1 Whitethroat, Ruppels Warbler (highlight!), 8 Chiffchaffs, 3 Bulbuls and a Graceful Prinia. In the evening we trap 28 Swallows, 3 Red-rumped Swallows (beautiful swallows!) and a Cetti's Warbler.
Caspian Reed Warbler ('fuscus')
Rüeppels Warbler, female!
The raptor migration existed out of 8 Steppeeagles, 1 Great Spotted Eagle, 1 Long-legged Buzzard and a Booted Eagle (the local one probably) that got hold of a Collared Dove by an impressive dive! In the IBRCE park I see my first snakes: 2 Schokari sand racers. In the ringing hut we see a Gekko.
In the afternoon we did some birdwatching on the North Beach, for amongst others Greater Sand Plover, we didn't find it however.. We did see Western Reef Heron, Pied Kingfisher, Armenian Gulls and in the evening some 30 White-eyed Gulls.
I don't know if you may this a recordshot but I'll just show it..:
Next morning we're off to Holland again...
