Second shower of sand martins (1 September 2009)

Today we ringed 201 birds out of 18 species. We had a sand martin shower at the last check and our ringer Sedat Inak had to ring until 2 am in the morning. Our volunteers Özgül Yahyaoğlu, Eylül Dizdaroğlu and Ayşe Bengisu Gelmez from Hacettepe University Biology Department joined us.
