Mist netting course

Last weekend I led mist netting course in Tzor'a Valley Ringing Station. This is the first stage of the long training for obtaining a ringing permit in Israel. I had six participants and the course went very well. Thanks to Yotam for his assistance. Weather was hot and steamy; however we ringed quite a few migrants - 4 Great Reed Warblers, 2 Savi's Warblers, 3 Common Kingfishers and this nice male Little Bittern.
