7th September 2020

The overnight wind had calmed by the earlier hours of the day and all the nets were open this morning. It was quite busy with subsequent encounters of birds that had been banded before the windy weather over the weekend. The majority of these had gained fat in the time since they had been banded.

Vismig was quieter. Sädesärla/white wagtail were heard but not seen coming out of roost from Bredmar reedbed in the half-light, a flock of Grönsiska/siskin were feeding around the Fågelstation throughout the morning, two Sparvhök/sparrowhawk were hunting around the Fågelstation and an additional five were circling to gain height then went South mid-morning.
