Common Tern ringing near Zagreb

The day started very bad as we took 3 shoots with new cannons and still didn't manage to stretch the whole net :(

After that we went to ring some Common Tern chicks at one colony in Zagreb.. It was great!! In hour and twenty minutes Zec and I ringed 73 pulli!! Great number!! And didn't risk our life at any moment :)
Next year we have to start using colour rings for Common Terns!

On the same island we found 6 Great Crested Grebe nest (still with eggs), Few dead YLGs and one dead BHG with white ring from Jakusevec from this winter..

On Friday we'll try to stretch the net with new cannons... again :(
