Sand Martin calls - hit of the week

The last half week has been dominated by wind and rain, but the weather finally settled late this morning. Put up around 2/3 of the nets between 14-18, and put on some Sand Martin calls on one of the speakers - again this proved very popular, and within half an hours 128 Sand Martins were trapped. Then all that remained was to turn of the music and go to work.....Total ringed, netmeter hours approx 1200: Sand Martin 129, Barn Swallow 2, Tree Pipit 2, White Wagtail 2, European Robin 1, Garden Warbler 1, Willow Warbler 7, Spotted Flycatcher 1, House Sparrow 3, Tree Sparrow 2, Greenfinch 16. Total = 166. Also 9 controls, including a 1 cy Sand Martin not from Revtangen.
