Revtangen BO July 14th

Today we've been working to prepare the bird observatory for the autumn season, "officially" starting in mid-July. One more net was set up around the main pond and extended a little compared to last year. Now we just have to hope that there will be some Green Sandpipers and later Grey Wagtails. Two more of the most worn large nets were replaced with new ones, in addition to some minor repair jobs on a few other nets.

We put up the nets around the feeder for a short while, but there were too many sparrows getting caught so we closed them again so that we could finish with the nets. 

Ringed: Barn Swallow 1, Willow Warbler 2, Great Tit 4, House Sparrow 8, Tree Sparrow 5, Yellowhammer 2. Total = 22. Also 5 controls. 

Observations: Common Quail 1 singing in the fields to the west.
