Revtangen BO September 23rd-25th

Continued SE-ESE winds, at times a bit too strong for efficient trapping. Despite the favourable wind directions the past three days have been poor birdwise, with only 114 birds in total. The hightlight was not a bird, but a moth; A Shuttle-shaped Dart (Agrotis puta) was trapped in one of the Robinson-traps on the 25th, a new species at Revtangen BO and only the 4th Norwegian record.
