In the Evros Delta, I like to:

Evros Delta Management Authority implements ringing expeditions for passerines.  From 17 to 25 of August we ringed 1247 birds from 35 species, monitoring the autumn migration. The most numerous species that we caught were the Sedge Warbler Acrocephalus schoenobaenus, the Eurasian Reed Warbler A. scirpaceus and the Great Reed Warbler A. arundinaceus. We recovered 10 birds, of which a Great Reed Warbler had a ring from Italy, a Eurasian Reed Warbler from Bulgaria and 8 birds that were ringed in…
The passerine ringing (to study the autumn migration) in Armires area in Evros Delta has started in August 17th. 873 birds were trapped during the first week. The most numerous species were the walblers (Reed, Great Reed and Sedge). Other birds were the Willow Warbler, the Cetti’s Warbler, the Savi’s Warbler, the Blackcap, the Whitethroat, the Red-backed Shrike and many others. It has to be noted that among the birds that were trapped, we controlled birds ringed in previous years…

Dimitris and Hercules seems that they did not make it, as they transmit from the same spots for…

The last recordings, made by the scientific personnel of Evros Delta Management Authority, in late July and early August, registered significantly large numbers of birds. The areas which are still flooded with fresh water become less every day and gather, as it is natural, the largest populations of birds. Among the most important observations were the 1.135 Wood Sandpipers, 844 Greenshanks, 1.152 Little Egrets…
