Bird-ringing in the Natural Park of Mondragó

Last October the 31st a group of teenagers from Santanyí Highschool attended a bird-ringing day at Mondragó Natural Park.
This was untaken by Cristina Fiol, an expert ringer. Cristina explained the uses of ringing birds, the kind of data we can obtain from it and how it is done.

Birds they could observe in hand were Robin (E. rubecula), Blackcap (S. atricapilla), Sardinian Warbler (S. melanocephala) an Cirl Bunting (E. cirlus).
