|Ivan in action|
Unfortunately, most of the Yelkouan's already fledged and only few youngsters and adults were present at the colony :(
First night we managed to ring 19 Yelkouan's and 3 Scopoli's. We caught 1 Yelkouan and 1 Scopoly with our rings from last years(I'll put ringing data here when I get them ;)).
Most of the Yelkouans were young but some were very difficult to age..

On last photo is holding a rat in a trap. It's part of active control of rat population on island with tubenoses colonies on it. Ivan started doing that this year in coordination with Lastovo Nature Park. This year there were much more Yelkouan chicks than last years because of it. Unfortunately we missed timing... It will be much more next year!
Next day Ivana and Ivan went to check other colonies.. All the youngsters were already left so we didn't even wisited it at night..
And in the end just wanted to put a photo of a camp we slept in.
It's camp Skriveni near Skrivena Luka. Prices are very cheap and it's really nice! People are very friendly. We came at half past 4 from the colony first night and it was ok :) Also you can get dinner for 60kn (around 8Euros) with huge portion of fresh fish and home made wine. Very delicious! I was there for the first time and would like recommend it!
One more photo for the end :
