27th April 2019

A good migration day with a lot of visible warbler movement, although
the weather conditions were challenging at times. Two Wrynecks (Göktyta) were at Saltmar this evening.

49 birds were ringed this morning, including two new species for
the year: Pied Flycatcher (Svartvit flugsnappare)
and Blackcap (Svarthätta). We had to close several nets as the
wind picked up throughout the morning leading to them all being closed by 10:30
(half an hour earlier than usual). Shortly after we closed there was a brief
period of intense rain, the first ‘real’ rain we have had in over
a month!

P1 radio show ‘Naturmorgon’ broadcast live from the obs this
morning following our morning of bird ringing. Listen retrospectively here.

There will be five at the obs
tonight. Matt, Espen, Måns, Albin and Nickolas.
