Na última Segunda-feira, dia 11, processaram-se 13 aves de 8 espécies diferentes, sendo possível verificar os resultados aqui. O primeiro juvenil anilhado este ano foi um Chapim-rabilongo (Aegithalus caudatus). Foi capturada uma das aves mais vistosas do país, um Dom-fafe (Pyrrhula pyrrhula). Sendo que o Parque Biológico de Gaia não é habitat mais favorável para a espécie, é possível que esta ave tenha sido o resultado de uma apreensão de aves em cativeiro ilegal, que depois de um período no Centro de Recuperação terá sido libertado. Uma Toutinegra-de-barrete-preto (Sylvia atricapilla) nascida em 2009 e anilhada pela primeira vez a 01/05/2010, há 1836 dias, foi recapturada.
Esperamos voltar ao calendário previsto o mais breve possível.
The period of April rains prevented the fulfillment of the schedule, but didn't stopped CES to be fulfilled, namely . Thus 28th April was made a session in which there're processed 12 birds of 8 different species. The highlight was the capture of a Common Firecrest (Regulus ignicapilla), a Spotless Starling (Sturnus unicolor) and a Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major). The re-trap that caught our attention was a Song Thrush (Turdus philomelos) ringed for the first time on 16/2/2013, even then it was considered a bird EURING code 6 (not born in 2012), so at most, born in spring 2011 and completing, at least, its 4th year of life.
In last Monday, the 11th May, we had 13 birds of 8 different species, and you can check the results here. The first juvenile ringed this year was a Long-tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus). It was captured one of the most showy birds of the country, Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula). As Parque Biológico de Gaia is not a favorable habitat for the species, it is possible that this bird was the result of a seizure of birds in illegal captivity, that after a period in the Parque Vet Hospital has been released. A Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla) born in 2009 and ringed for the first time 01/05/2010, was recaptured so completing 1836 days since the first capture.
We hope to return to the schedule as soon as possible.
