Revtangen BO - The 2020 season is on

Finally a couple of days of nice calm sunny weather, which temped us into starting the 2020 season early. Nets open from around 07-17, netmeter hours approx. 3000. The Skylarks are singing and the first Lapwings are displaying, but no arrival of migrants in the trapping area.
