Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla)

VKO Katon-Karagay



The easternmost record in Kazakhstan. During migration Blackcap mostly occurs in Western Kazakhstan. For a long time the easternmost record was the observation in Borovoe (Shtegman, 1934). In Kurgaldzhino birds were recorded both in spring and autumn migration (Koshkin, 2017). In Russia this species distributes in east up to Tomsk and Kemerovo oblast (Ryabitsev, 2014; Vasilchenko, 2004). In China first Blackcap was recorded in 2012 in Kashi (Guo H., Ma M., 2013), also birds were later observed at November 21st and December 29th of 2013 (www.xinjiang.birds.watch). Probably the occurring of Blackcaps so far to east relates to the new wintering spots of the eastern populations of this species.

European Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros gibraltariensis)

2016-08-12



The first breeding record of Phoenicurus ochruros gibraltariensis in Kazakhstan! Previously was recorded on migration in Mangyshlak, Northern Caspian, Northern Kazakhstan (Naurzum) and Central Kazakhstan (Kurgaldzhino). European Black Redstart inhabits the south of Europe. In recent decades, this subspecies settled almost to the Urals. Birds with nesting behavior were recorded in the middle of summer in the South Urals reserve and its environs (Lastukhin et al., 2016), and also in the vicinity of Yekaterinburg (Lyakhov, 2014). There are known cases of successful nesting in Western Siberia: in Tyumen (Grazhdan, 2010) and Novosibirsk (Zhimulev et al, 2011). This record complements the general picture of the expansion of European subspecies to the east.
