Revtangen BO June 11th

The second Western Jackdaw ringed at Revtangen

No ringing for a  week and a half, and the last days winds have bleen blowing hard from the NNW. House Sparrows seems to have had a decent breeding season (first clutch at least), and the re-designed garden with new pools, exposed soil for dustbaths and a feeder has attracted a lot of attention from the "gangs" of juveniles roaming the countryside. 

Most nets open 06-12.30, netmeter hours approx. 1700. 

Ringed: Collared Dove 2, Meadow Pipit 1, Willow Warbler 1, Common Starling 1, Common Magpie 1, Western Jackdaw 1, Tree Sparrow 4, House Sparrow 71, Greenfinch 3, Lesser Redpoll 1. Total = 86. Also 12 controls, including a Greenfinch with a Danish ring.

The Yellow Iris (Iris pseudacorus) we planted in one of the new ponds are doing good, and now in full bloom. Sverdlilje.
