Finally a day with light easterlies in the morning, and great conditions for trapping and ringing! Tried playback on Tengmalm's and Pygmy Owl from 01-dawn, and 3 Tengmalm's Owl were trapped. A Long-eared Owl narrowly escaped our grasping hands. Playback on Redwing and Song Thrush around dawn, later on Grey Wagtail, European Goldfinch and Olive-backed Pipit.
