A new volunteer arrived at the station while ringing activities continued

Yesterday, Théotim (a French guy) joined us as a volunteer for the next 9 weeks. He will be focusing on counting waders during the migration period. To celebrate his arrival, he baked a chocolate cake that was "edible" according to Michael.

In the evening, we had a great time trying to catch two red-backed shrikes (a male and a female). Michael had spotted the nest, and even though we had to wait until today to catch the parents, we ringed 4 of the 5 babies. See the photos below.

Today, Michael and Maxim ringed 2 ringed plovers and the female red-backed shrike. Another nest of red-backed shrikes was discovered with 2 eggs inside. After a few observations, David had to leave the station to go back to work, but he'll come back soon!

Tonight, we welcome 2 guests at the station!
