Decent spring ringing

Back to my ringing site at Ashdod today after a long absence. I was fearing a boring morning as this is a very slow spring here in Israel with many missing species. I was happy to hear the reeds and bushes ticking with warblers as it became light. We had a good catch with lots of warblers of sorts. Highlight was this 2cy female Collared Flycatcher - nice bird.

Today was a bumper day at the JBO and a very good day at the IBRCE too, so I hope that from now on we will be getting decent migration coming through. A bit too late but better late than never.
Thanks to Edith, Miri and Shlomo for their help this morning.
