Revtangen BO October 5th-7th

The easterlies continued, with two busy mornings on the 5th-6th. Huge arrival of Blue Tits on the 5th, and most nets were closed around 9. Only half the nets in use on the 6th also, when there was a large fall of Song Thrush, European Robin, Blackcap, Chiffchaff and Goldcrest over much of coastal SW Scandinavia. Limited trapping from around 10 on the 7th, when the weather turned out to me more favourable for ringing than forecastet.
