Early spring

Last week, my first visit to my CES site produce a Ukrainian-ringed Chiffchaff.  Apart from this surprise I ringed in Tzor'a and in Modiin Hills the predicted species for this season, mostly Lesser Whitethroats, Blackcaps and Reed Warblers.
Two mornings in JBO in late March produced two Subalpine Warblers - very nice species I haven't ringed for a very long.
