Hakuna Matata (14 April 2009)

Today our volunteer Serhat Cacekli from Koc University left. When leaving, he sang a Kenyan song called "Hakuna Matata (No problem)" that James taught us. Our British ringer Richard Taylor joined us, too. Now there are one Finnish, one Kenyan, one British and one Turkish ringer at Aras Station. It was warm all day. The number of vultures hanging around our carcass increased and we also saw some egyptian vultures, too.

It was cloudy and around 8 degrees. Today we saw 4 black and 1 griffon vultures around the carcass. We also had good migration including 15 Montagu's harriers, 2 pallid harriers and 1 black stork. We ringed 11 birds out of 5 species.

Today's birds are:

Chiffchaff
Bluethroat
Siberian stonechat
Whinchat
Yellow wagtail
