Spring report 2016 (12.07.2016)
This spring the number of caught birds in the standardized ringing campaign ended again below normal average. The weather was warm and some species showed record early arrivals. Common Redstart, White Wagtail, Chiffchaff and Robin have been ringed in high numbers this spring, while Willow Warbler, most of the finches and tits were significantly below normal. This is the second consecutive year with a 100% breeding failure of Lapwing in the area. It is also the lowest number of breeding pairs ever.

Population monitoring at Jomfruland and Lista Bird Observatories in 2015 (14.03.2016)
In 2015 the ringing numbers for common species was lower than normal, especially in autumn at Lista. This is due to the poor breeding season, as the spring was dominated by high rainfall and low temperatures in May and June. The annual ringing results were, however, somehow compensated by a record incidence of Goldcrest.

On February 1st a new study was published on Journal of Avian Biology. The title of the article is “An experimental evaluation of the effects of geolocator design and attachment method on between-year survival on Whinchats Saxicola rubetra”.
