9th April 2019

A cold and blustery day with a light sprinkling of snow this afternoon; we were again only able to open a few sheltered nets this morning. Only 13 birds were ringed but we did retrap a six-year-old Chaffinch (Bofink) that was ringed back in 2014 as a 2cy.

The highlight was two Black Redstart (Svart Rödstjärt) at South Udden. A Kestrel (Tornfalk) was still present around the south.

Tonight there will be two at the obs: Matt and Espen.
