Delhi Bird-BNHS Bird Ringing Camp

20th September, 2003

The Delhi Bird-BNHS Bird Ringing Camp was organised in Basai in Haryana from 9 to 14 September 2003 with support from WPSI.

This was the third, and longest, bird-ringing camp held at Basai under the guidance of Dr Balachandran and with organisational support provided by delhibird. Approximately 300 people attended the camp. The new Checklist of the Birds of the Delhi Region was distributed.

Three hundred and sixty one birds were ringed, of 34 species. Of particular interest were two Baillon's Crakes (Oriental and Small Pratincoles), 130 Ruffs and 12 Bluethroats. There were fewer waders and ducks than last year because the excellent monsoon meant there were more alternative sites for them. The reduction in the typha beds meant there was no wagtail or hirundine roosts in the area and a number of other migrants appeared arriving late.
