Last Saturday 21st was expected to be a easy session with few birds. And so it was. There's 13 birds trapped in total, 9 of which were re-traps. From all re-traps, two of the Robins (Erithacus rubecula), highlighted in the last post, were also re-trapped this session.
And after some years just watching it passing by... we trapped for the first time in Parque Biológico de Gaia (PBG) a Hoopoe (Upupa epops). In the same round in the nets, and for the second time in 8 years of monitorization, we got a Wood pigeon (Columba palumbus). The capture of the Hoopoe (Upupa epops) rise to 43 the number of species caught in the nets.
As important as the highlighted species, it was detected an egg in the oviduct of a Long-tailled-tit (Aegithalos caudatus), which remind us that Spring has started.
