Revtangen BO early august

The wind finally settled for a few days, and we managed to squeeze in 3 days of ringing on the 10th-12th, when we had very light easterlies in the morning and lighty shifting breeze later in the day. The wind picked up from the south after lunch on the 12th, and trapping was inefficient after that. In addition to trapping with mist nets in the observatory garden, there has been five nightly attempts at Revtangen on Storm-Petrels, with a few waders also as bycatch.


8 Grasshopper Warblers (5+3) were ringed on 11th-12th, 7 1cy and 1 adult. A scarce and very skulky species. Gresshoppesanger 1K.
