Revtangen BO October 29th-30th

Finally some nice calm weather again. The 29th was sunny but with a cold morning. Some movement overhead of finches. Again a cold morning on the 30th, but clouds moved in and frozen nets were thawed an hour or so after dawn. A huge movement of Redpolls kept us busy the rest of the day.
