Day 5

Standard

Only 17 birds searched today, but Tomas Najer, who came here yesterday after having had problems with him collections in Falsterbo, also searched some. He didn’t get any lice, but I finally got two nymphs from a House Sparrow Passer domesticus. The lice are either Philopterus fringillae or Sturnidoecus refractoriolus; the latter is likely a junior synonym of Rostrinirmus ruficeps.

It’s been raining a bit this morning, but now it’s clearing up, and I may try to do some migration bird counts this afternoon, if I can stay awake.
