94 birds were ringed this morning including the biggest catch of redpolls so far this year, the vast majority of these being Lesser Redpolls (Brunsiska), with only one Mealy Redpoll (Gråsiska). Two Jack Snipe (Dvärgbeckasin) were at Saltmar while a Water Rail (Vattenrall) was at Bredmar, having been present a couple of days. Despite there being none seen on Landsort so far, it’s worth noting the historic invasion of Pine Grosbeak (Tallbit) taking place in Scandinavia at the moment – they are being seen daily in large numbers just to the north of us on Torö, so hopefully it’s only a matter of time before some make it here!
