Vaibla Ringing Station is open for the summer season! However, the birds we ringed today, were not be the first for this season. As tabel.vaibla.net shows, 237 birds have been ringed already. Common rosefinch (Carpodacus erythrinus; 28) and sedge warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus; 27) are in the top. Tens of recaptures of birds, ringed in previous years were also caught. The most interesting species was the paddyfield warbler (Acrocephalus agricola), which was already caught on may 30th. It's nice that the guest season is also open - on May 25th, birders from the Swedish Marks Fågelklubb visited us. Vaibla Ringing Station invites volunteers to participate in ringing activities as well as birding enthusiasts to visit us and see birds (please contact us first via FB or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org)!
