Subalpine Warbler (Sylvia cantillans) © G.Réthoré

Autumn is not over yet but after more than 3 weeks of solid ringing, some trends already appear. This year has been good for Subalpine Warblers (8 birds caught in a couple of month), Spotted Flycatchers (5 birds caught in a couple of month) and Robin (30 birds caught in 3 weeks), while Blackcaps are appearing in big numbers. On the other hand, no Nightingale were caught, and few Reed and Garden Warblers fell in the nets. For the first time since 2009 2 Yellow-browed Warblers were ringed, and who knows, more may still come!
