Revtangen BO August 19th


Too windy for any trapping and ringing. Today the local Birdlife partner NOF Rogaland held a course in wader identification at the bird observatory. An excellen presentation by Björn Mo was followed by a short excursion down to Revtangen. Despite wind and a few rainshowers a good selection of waders were seen, including adult Grey Plover, juvenile Spotted Redshank and juvenile Black-tailed Godwit (ssp. islandica). 14 participants.
