Pied Flycatchers and Wood Warblers - 1st May
A combination of circumstances led to incomplete coverage today with a need to take down the mist nets mid-morning and a visit to Areopoli in the afternoon.
What coverage there was revealed a mixed fall with 22 Pied Flycatcher and 7 Wood Warbler; there had also seemingly been an influx of Black-eared Wheatears with 9 between Beehive Pass and Kokinoghia.
The most notable bird of the day was a rather late Serin seen briefly n the car park at Kokinoghia early on.
At least 44 Bee-eaters went north by mid-morning.
Bird Ringing: Pied Flycatcher 9, Wood Warbler 4, Black-eared Wheatear 2, Garden Warbler 2, Sedge Warbler 2 and House Sparrow 1.
Overall Total: 20 birds ringed from 78m nets in 3.5 hours.
