Revtangen BO October 13th-16th

We've had a number of days now with very calm weather and light easterlies, almost no wind at times. On the 13th we decided not to open any nets, and that was a good decision as 5000 Blue Tits migrated through the trapping area in four hours in the morning! The remaining days we have trapped with a reduced number of nets (around half), to be on the safe side.




The first Eurasian Woodcock of the season was trapped on the 16th. Rugde.
