A few minutes before we trapped the Pine Bunting another major rarity was trapped and ringed by John Alsvik at Maleneset by Lake Orrevatnet, a little more than a kilometer away from Revtangen BO - a SIBERIAN ACCENTOR! Both birds were shown to visiting birders shortly after at Orre Friluftshus. This might be a difficult photo to repeat... thanks to Björn Mo for the nice photo.
