Revtangen BO October 19th-20th

Tried owl trapping again on the night between the 18th and 19th. The wind was initially in the NW and a bit too strong, but eased off and turned SE after midnight when the conditions improved a lot. A big surprise in the form of a Hawk Owl trapped around 22, before two Tengmalm's Owls caught between 01 and 03. Trapping by day on the 19th only in the morning until 11, and also a short session on the 20th 10.30-15. In total, around 1400 netmeter hours in daylight. Playback on Redwing (dawn) and Grey Wagtail on the 19th.
