Today was a rainy day and we started to check the nets with our new volunteers Ali and Hayri. Bird photographers also left today. Since it was rainy, it was again a poor day and we could only ring 12 birds out of 6 species. In the afternoon we observed 11 buzzards migrating over our station.
Today's birds are:
Chifchaff Robin Bluethroat Yellowhammer Chaffinch Dunnock
