Revtangen BO August 31st-September 2nd

The weather is not doing us any favours at the moment, but we've managed a bit of ringing in between. Lots of waders at Revtangen on the 31st, and an afternoon effort with walk-in traps produced a nice catch of 209 birds. Most waders had left the next day, but a few hours of catching before noon resulted in another 21 birds. We had a visit from 20 students and one teacher from Godalen VGS on Monday 2nd, when mist-netting in the garden resultet in a catch of 105 birds despite quite strong NW.
