We did not hear any birds today at the site before dawn, maybe because it is already time for silence after breeding or maybe because we have taken a little jump to autumn with a temperature of 14ºC in an unpleasant windy day.

The number of captures dropped to the level of the days previous to the first heat in summer. I think it is even lower if we take juveniles out of the list. This is the commonly commented tendency this year in other ringing stations.

So this is the list of captures: 4 Robins (1 retrapped, 2 juveniles), 1 Nightingale (juvenile), 1 Sardinian Warbler, 2 Wrens (juveniles), 4 Chaffinches (3 juveniles), 1 Serin.

13 individuals of 6 different species in total.

The most active birds at the site today have been the Booted Eagles (of which we could observe 3 adult individuals flying together), the couple of Short-toed Eagles and Western Bonelli’s Warblers, managing their noisy families in the thick of the pine trees and cork oaks.

We have mentioned in other occasions the fact that we ringed many of these warblers at the beginning of the passage period but none in the last months even though they are common at the site. I think that once the migration finished, they settled in the leafy forest and do not frequent the open fields among bushes and lower trees were the nets are set.

For some photographs, have a look at:

Hi Luis,

Thank you for the report it is very interesting.  How many more weeks are you going to continue ringing?

I know you are ringing in Montes de Málaga but it is it always at the same location in Montes de Málaga?

Hi David.

I assist Antonio Miguel Pérez Ortigosa with his ringing project in Montes de Malaga. This project is amongst the so called "constant effort bird ringing station" (I'm sure there must be a better expression for it in English!  :D) so he is ringing birds every week and he does it always at the same place.

He's already got a long record of captures in Montes de Málaga.
