My dear friend and ornithologist Antonio Miguel Perez has started a bird ringing program to study the migration schedule, stay at the site and biometry of waders and reed birds, and I am going to assist him in doing so, as it is the case with his Montes de Malaga Biological Station scientific bird ringing activities.

This study is to be carried out at the East auxiliary ditch of the river Guadalhorce left branch, an area to be much more taken care of by all the governmental bodies responsible for environmental affairs such as Malaga Townhall and Junta de Andalucia. It is out of the PN Desembocadura del Guadalhorce and should be cleaned up and protected from pollutant dumpings.

Despite these circumstances, this site is frequented by the birds object of the study and today we have carried out a trial with three nets set at right angles to the ditch. We got to the site at 4:15 and left at 10:00 after quite a strong North windy small hours that made our mission a little tougher.

We were received by two Red-necked Nightjars singing on the entrance track.

The balance of captures was 6 Ringed Plovers and 1 Redshank.
