End of 2017.

It was sopose to be -5C. Gulls should be very hungry!..but..it was +5C and gulls were not reallyinterested in feeding :(
When i came to the tip it was really nice with lots of gulls including these two:



They landed only two times on the tip. Second time, I didnt want to gamble so i fired and in the end it was better than zero, but 75 BHG is not the way you want to end the year..


Highlight of the day was one with Helsinki metal ring.


Now it is two weeks break because of Xmas and New Year, and i hope next one will start with better catch..

After long long time:)

Finally we started new season on Jakuševec!
It looked very promissing as the tip site was really small so I tought we'll concentrate all of them in catching area. Something simmilar happend, but as there was huge number of gulls present on small space , we couldn't get clear shoot for 3 hours! We were really freezed and pissed. But it was worth it:)
Nice clear shoot with 145 bgh, 1 common, 63 ylg and 5 caspians:)

March 8th 2015

It was a promising day with lots of gulls feeding on the tip. Our biggest problem was relatively small team of only 6 of us..

We had first catch very fast after setting. There were around 100 BHGs and 1 adult MedGull :)


As there were only six of us, we were not sure about second catch but after big gulls started landing in the catching area we decided to reset. I took second catch some 10 minutes after reset and it was great! I was waiting for LBBG to enter the catching area, but I wasn't aware of other interesting birds there:)
Here are some of them:

9L5B Adult omisus from Lithuania, ringed as a chick in 2009. When I saw the ring I was tought of yellow legged argentatus, but wing tip was really cachoid..






86EH 1w cach


98EH 1w mich


956H ad cach



952H LBBG ..


..which we then released ...



...and was found by Pavel Stepanek on March 14th (six days later :) ) in Czech Republic on Žabčice rubbish dump :)
 Really great day!! I must say that this small crew did fantastic job and I want to thank Pavel for this recovery!
