Revtangen BO September 18th-30th

No ringing apart from a single Greenfinch between the 12th and 17 because of bad weather. Another decent period after that with ringing on most days. We also managed a bit of garden work in th south of the trapping area, opening up the vegetation a bit to create passages, and erected another mist net in the most southern setup.

Our 15th Olive-backed Pipit at Revtangen BO, but the first since 2018. Sibirpiplerke.
