Revtangen BO April 7th

Finally the wind settled in the morning, and we could try some mistnetting again from 09-20. Netmeter hours approx. 3400. The past couple of days were quite warm and lots of birds probably arrived in Scandinavia, but the wind was much too strong for trapping. Today revealed a couple of early arrivals, with Willow Warbler and Blackcap ringed.


The first Willow Warbler already was a nice surprice. L√łvsanger.
