Revtangen BO October 13th-20th

After a period with mainly bad weather in the second week of October, we've had a slightly better period with ringing carried out on the 13-14th (slihtly reduced number of nets), 16th (from 9-17, no ringing at dawn), and "full routine" from 18th-20th. Most of the days with ringing the wind was in the NE-SE, a few rainshowers now and then. Still, the number of birds in the area is lower than what is expected in mid October.
