September 8 - Raptors Day! & A new species on the net

Today is the 24th day. 11 species out of 23 birds in total were ringed.
We had a new species for this season: an immature ''Common Rosefinch'' (Carpodacus erythrinus).

Today was also a nice day for raptors. They took advantage of wind in the afternoon. 52 Black Kites (Milvus migrans), 2 Marsh Harrier (Circus aeruginosus), 1 Long-legged Buzzard (Buteo rufinus), 1 Honey Buzzard (Pernis apivorus) and a juvenile Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) glide over us.

Good birding...:)

Today's birds were:

Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica)
Garden Warbler (Sylvia borin)
Swallow (Hirundo rustica)
Marsh Warbler (Acrocephalus palustris)
Redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus)
Common Rosefinch (Carpodacus erythrinus)
Yellow Wagtail (Motacilla flava)
Spotted Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata)
Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus)
Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio)
