Revtangen BO May 8th

We knew we would have to pay for the unusually nice weather in April, and we were right - May arrived with strong NW and snow! After a cold week with strong NW today was the first chance to put up the nets, but it was still cold in the morning. Nets open 06-18, netmeter hours approx. 4100. Light shifting breeze, part sunny. Today we also had a visit from 14 pupils and 10 adults from Gosen school, and luckily we had a nice selection of birds to show them.
