Revtangen BO October 31st-November 2nd

Three days with quite similar conditions, light easterlies and mostly cloudy, a few light drizzles now and then. Gradually fewer redpolls, but they dominate the catch for sure. Playback on thrushes around dawn and repoll/goldfinch/yellowhammer during the day.
