3rd October 2020

528 birds were ringed this morning, most of which were again Goldcrest (Kungsfågel) taking the total of this species ringed in the past two days to over 900! The first Great Grey Shrike (Varfågel) of the autumn was also ringed. In the village a Pallas’s Warbler (Kungsfågelsångare) was present around the chapel and seen sporadically during the morning and afternoon, and at one point was in the same small bush as a Red-flanked Bluetail (Tajgablåstjärt) which briefly put in an appearance this afternoon!
