Revtangen BO September 26th-29th

As always we are at the mercy of the weather, and we've had a few windy days and some rain also. Ringing in a bit too windy SE on the 26th was not very productive, no ringing on the 27th, less than half the nets in use 09-17 on the 28th, and finally a very nice day with little wind and lots of sun on the 29th produced 100 birds.
