Garden Warbler visits Museum again a year later

On 28th January 2014 at National Museums of Kenya grounds, Nairobi Ringing Group members were ringing birds, hoping to catch some migrants from Europe or Asia. Little did they know that they were going to be lucky?

First net round we capture three migrants – Garden Warbler (Sylvia borin), Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus), Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla) – and some local birds. We ring and release them.
