Revtangen BO June and July

Ringing activities have been more restricted than usual this summer due to lack of personell. Nets were only operated on five dates in June and three dates in July. In addition, there were a few sessions of Storm-petrel trapping at Revtangen.

The highlight among ringed birds was this juvenile Black Redstart, which stayet in the trapping area for a week in July. No trapping was done in the period, but i flew into one of the buildings and trapped itself. Svartr√łdstjert, 1K.
