Abstract. Here we describe our knowledge on invasive occurrence and behaviour of ramblings on several roosting sites in Slovakia. Altogether we recorded three invasive occurrences of bramblings from 2004 to 2017. In 2004 we recorded invasive behaviour during the spring migration in Hrhov, SE Slovakia. Sex-ratio of 739 mist-netted individuals was biased to females (1:1.9). In winter periods 2008/2009 and 2016/2017 we observed wintering with massive roosting on two sites in E (Gelnica) and C Slovakia (Klenovec) with ca. 3.5 and 0.4 millions of individuals, respectively. Sex-ratio was strongly biased to males (>2.8:1) in both localities.

Key words: brambling, irruption, winter roosting
