Today is national sovereignty and children's day in Turkey and it is 86th anniversary year of the establishment of the Turkish parliament. Then founder of Turkey Mustafa Kemal Atatürk gifted this day to world children and it is being celebrated as children's day.

We had a nice day of ringing because we have ringed the highest number of birds since we started this season. There was a yellow wagtail shower of 46 individuals.

Today we ringed 66 birds out of 13 species.

Today's birds are:

Willow warbler
Semi-collared flycatcher
Cetti's warbler
Thrush nightingale
Savi's warbler
Pallid harrier
Yellow wagtail
