Revtangen BO April 20th-30th

April was unusually cold in Norway as in much of the rest of Europe. The 20th-25th was windy and no ringing was carried out, from the 26th-30th there was little wind but cold nights, and light shifting breeze which turned NW early in the day. Between 9 and 15 birds were ringed each day, so very quiet.

Two Ring Ouzels were the highlight during this period.
