Big Rybachinskaya trap started it’s work after six days of preparations. For installing it we need two days but we decided to repair the cage in the end of the trap so this was long work. And Big Trap started it’s duty on the 26-th of April. First bird caught in Big Trap was Red-throated Thrush (Turdus ruficollis).
