Common Bee-eater (Merops apiaster)
During the raptor catching we found a ringed Grey Heron in the Souther Date Palms, probably a foreign ringed bird! We weren't able to read the ring however..
Yeah let's eat a Squacco Heron, why not!
Dark morph Steppe Buzzard (Buteo buteo vulpines)
The swallow catch in the evening resulted in a good number of swallows again, always nice.
This morning was quite good with many new birds. We ringed some Yellow Wagtails, all of them were males. Pretty looking birds!
Nice males Yellow Wagtails (Motacilla flava)
Also we ringed a 2cy male Subalpine Warbler, our 5th or 6th for the season. After the ringing Roni suddenly discovered a young male Menetries's Warbler foraging next to the ringing station. We were able to observe it well and we could see the bird swooping it's tail all the time, awesome!
Subalpine Warbler (Sylvia cantillans albistriata), 2cy male
And now I'm gonna look for the iglo because it's hot hot outside; 37 degrees! (I know, it will get even hotter soon)
