Observations of scanty and rare bird species of the Crimean on Tarkhankut Peninsula during autumn migration 2007

E.A. Diadicheva, L. Maksalon, B. Wozniak, V.A. Busel

From 21 August to 9 October on Tarkhankut (NW Crimea, Black Sea area), near the village Olenevka  (45˚25’N 32˚32’E) there were ringed Passeriformes, and some other species of forest complex, autumn migration was visually observed. Birds were caught with mist nests in the shrubs of the peninsula; their species, sex and standard biometrical parameters were identified  (Busse, 2000); they were also ringed to continue many years’ monitoring of seasonal migrations in this area. This work was executed in cooperation with SEEN (SE European Bird Migration Network) and under its support. In a total there were ringed 4,306 individuals of 50 species. New data were received on rare and poor known species of the Crimea and North Black Sea area. These data allow to include the Booted Eagle (Hieraaetus pennatus) and Pine Bunting (Emberiza leucocephala) in the list of rare migratory species of Tarkhankut Peninsula; to consider the River Warbler (Locustella fluviatilis) as a scanty but regular autumn migrant with permanents terms of migration across this area; to consider the Red-rumped Swallow (Hirundo daurica) and the Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica) as very rare migratory species in autumn-spring period.
