Revtangen May 1st

Large fall of migrants

Today a moderately strong ESE displaced a large number of migrants towards the west, and produced a large fall along the coast of Rogaland county. Revtangen BO was no exception, and we had the second best spring day we've had the last ten years. Nets open 05.30-19.30, netmeter hours approx. 4800. ESE turning S around 14.30, after the wind turned the trapping conditions became very difficult.
