On 10.10.2008 a Radde's Warbler was trapped and ringed at Amadorio river, Vilajoyosa, Alicante (Antonio Zaragozí, helped by Toni Mulet and Guillermo Mayor). A description has already been submitted to the Rarities Committe of this bird, the 3rd for Spain. In Antonio's words: 'El mosquitero de Schwarz se extrayò sobre las 18h en la zona habitual de anillamiento siempre que llegan estas fechas, ya que es una zona de resguardo del viento y se concentran muchas golondrinas, aviones roqueros y mosquiteros en pleno invierno. La EDAR de Villajoyosa hace que la gran cantidad de larvas de mosquitos estén aseguradas' 'The Radde's Warbler was captured around 18 hours in the usual ringina area of this part of the year. It's a place safeguarded from wind action where many swallows, rock martins and chiffchaffs gather during the winter. The waste plant from Vilajoyosa attracts a large amount of mosquito larvae to the area as well’ . Resumen: Mosquitero
