Revtangen BO August 28th-29th

As usual, in a windy place like Revtangen ringing is a bit on-and-off. We had two decent days again on the 28th-29th, with light NNE in the morning. The wind increased to 10-12 m/s after lunch on the 29th. Not a lot of migrants around, but a decent catch could be secured with playback on pipits and Sand Martins.




The first Grey Wagtail (1 cy) of the season was trapped on the 29th. Vintererle 1K.
