Gransångare - Phylloscopus collybita - Common Chiffchaff
NF Photo 111002, Falsterbo

When I was in Falsterbo we was introduced to ringing birds. The first day we learned a bit of the history and about the area we were in. More of that will be found on my Travel blog. The first bird we were  shown was a Chiffchaff. It was already ringed but we learned  a bit about it. One characteristic for this bird compared to similar ones is the dark cheek that make the bright ring around the eye stand out.

I really should need to work with the birds on a station for some time.
