Cyprus day 2 - Ringing

Ringing with Mike and Richard today.

Despite breezy conditions we managed to process 104 birds in just a few hours.

Blackcap made up the bulk of the catch but there was a nice supporting cast including wood, sardinian, reed and sedge warblers, corn bunting, whinchat, lesser and common whitethroats and pied fly.

There was even time for a short ringing demo for a group of Dutch birdwatchers who turned up halfway through the morning

Around the site were a couple of ortolan bunting, golden oriole, hoopoe, lots of serin and tree pipit.

A great morning and massive thanks to Richard and Mike for their help.
