Day 5


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.
