A 400+ day

Quality and quantity through the day

Light NE in the morning, part cloudy, later turning to light westerlies and gradually more sunny. Playback on Garden Warbler, Reed Warbler and Grasshopper Warbler through the night, Tree Pipit during the day and Sand Martin/Yellow Wagtail on and off. Also Playback on Tringa-waders by the pool, but no result from that. Sand Martins were again very interested in the playback, eventually we had to turn it off because if was too much to handle for two ringers.


1 cy Grasshopper Warbler. 4 were ringed today, a good number for Revtangen BO.

Ringed: Wood Pigeon 1, Sand Martin 289, Tree Pipit 29, White Wagtail 1, Yellow Wagtail 1, Bluethroat 1, Grasshopper Warbler 4, Reed Warbler 11, Garden Warbler 15, Blackcap 5, Willow Warbler 15, Spotted Flycatcher 1, House Sparrow 4, Tree Sparrow 4, Chaffinch 1, Greenfinch 13, Eurasian Siskin 6, Lesser Redpoll 1. Total = 403. Also 10 controls, including singles of Sand Martin and Tree Pipit not from Revtangen.


This 1 cy male Yellow Wagtail is a very rare catch at Revtangen, and was the result of a short experimental playback session by the observatory pools.
