Ringing in Espoo 3.7.2012

Roni Väisänen called me last week and asked if i like to join with him and Markus Piha to Laajalahti bush ringings in Espoo.
I was excited  of course and told him that i can join.
Today we opened the nets about four o´clock.
I cant remember every round at the nets but we had nice numbers of birds. There was many young birds, mostly Blackbirds, Thrush Nightingales, Pied Flycatchers and Robins.
Other nice birds in hand was Little-spotted Woodpecker, few Garden Warblers, Common Whitethroats, Sedge Warblers, Chiffchaff (race still mystery, probably sub-specie Collybita) and Common Rosefinch.

Common Rosefinch, adult Male.

Whitethroat, 1cy.


Roni and Markus checking the ChiffChaff.

Thank you Roni and Markus for letting me practice ringing and of course, thanks for the company.
We had nice time with mosquitos and other incects.
Ringing licence is one of my dreams so i think this practice was more than welcome if i want to pass the tests some day.
More mid-summer stuff coming hopefully soon.
