Revtangen BO May 30th

Heavy rain for much of the day. Lots of large Chironomidae (midges) hatching and plenty of starlings in the garden feeding on them. Trapping was not planned for today because of the weather, but we managed to keep the nets open for an hour in the afternoon because of all the starlings. We trapped only 3 Common Starlings, but the catch also contained 4 Spotted Flycatchers, a Willow Warbler and the first Icterine Warbler this season. 

Ringmerket: Gulsanger 1, løvsanger 1, gråfluesnapper 4, stær 3. Total = 9.
