Tzor'a update

Last week Hans Jurgen Eilts from Germany joined me to ring in Tzor'a Valley. Together we ringed about 300 birds. Late autumn migrants and first winter visitors were picking up: We ringed the first Robin, European Stonechat, Moustached Warbler and Chaffinch; Chiffchaffs and Bluethroats were also very common. The most interesting birds this week were the third River Warbler of this season - until this year I never had this species in autumn; the first Common Rosefinch this autumn and the second Wren ever ringed at Tzor'a, the previous one was ringed in February 2005.

Thanks to Hans for this nice week.
