But Marketa, the Czech ringer, continued the mist-netting activities. This is what she found:
"I caught only 55 birds (8 retraps) more until 25th of July. We had one day with heavy rain, and two days with smog from fires in Yakutia. Not so many Thick-billed Warblers like before, and even one day without them. No special species were recorded, only the local breeders - but one funny bird: a Wryneck! And I caught my first Azure-winged Magpie. Also interesting was a family of Brown Shrikes."

We will see what the next week will bring - migration of Leaf Warblers and Flycatchers should start very soon.
