July ringing - start of the 2019 autumn season

We are back - the autumn ringing season is here! We have done less ringing this midsummer than usual, in part bacause the old ringing lab has been pulled down and replaced with a brand new one! But now the trapping season has started, all nets are in place and ringing has been carried out on 8 more or less full days and one evening during July. This short blogpost is a summary of ringing results in July.
