We had the nets set at 6:15 in a quiet and clear morning with 16ºC.

We could hear a Tawny Owl and some Scops Owls and Red-necked Nightjars before dawn. It looks as if our friend the Woodlark has gone on holidays.

The site were the ringing station is located is a cool shady watercourse where birds go to take refuge from the summer heat so the beginning of the summer should produce an increase in captures.

And that’s the way it was and this is the captures summary: 4 Robins (2 retrapped), 3 Blackbirds, 2 Blackcaps, 1 Sardinian Warbler, 5 Melodious Warbler (2 retrapped), 1 Western Bonelli’s Warbler, 1 Firecrest, 2 Great Tits, 1 Long-tailed Tit, 4 Chaffinches, 3 Serins and 1 Rock Bunting.

Total: 29 individuals of 13 different species.

Only 11 birds out of the 29 trapped (38%) were post-juveniles. The only species that has not provided fledged birds was the Melodious Warbler.

The two retrapped Melodious Warblers were ringed this year in April and May. One of the Robins was also ringed this year in April, but the other was ringed as a juvenile in August of 2009.

All the Melodious Warblers caught today were males and they seemed to be very active, as we could observe last week at El Torcal (see June 12th “Melodious Warblers at sight!”). Juveniles have not been seen or caught so far this year at the station.

We have trapped today the first juvenile of Western Bonelli’s Warbler. Many of these birds were ringed at their arrival or passage by the site but, even though they are active and can be seen and heard, none of them fell in the nets in the last weeks. Curious...

Some more next week!
